Dyspraxic and...?

Post by Miss Jayney » Fri Jan 26, 2007 8:41 pm

Just wondering how often Dyspraxia goshand in hand with other conditons and what prevelance there is of this? how many people are "Dyspraxic and..." vs how many people have dyspraxia and no other disability (learning or otherwise)?

(for reference I am Dyslexic and bipolar as well ;) )

I have dyspraxia, tourettes syndrome, clinical depression, anxiety, sensory modulation disorder, and probobly other learning disabilities, I am still being assesed(think i spelled that right).
How can I tell that the past isn't a fiction designed to account for the discrepancy between my immediate physical sensation and my state of mind?

haha, thanks :D

No I was thinking of more typical dyspraxia related conditions and maybe also mild OCD but then getting assessed is more trouble than it's worth so I'll have to stay ignorant (if paranoid) for the time being, lol!
