Re: Hi everyone! Dyspraxic filmmaker here

Hi all, I’m a 34 year old horror scriptwriter/film director from London. I have only in the last few years discovered that my life-long clumsiness/forgetfulness and lack of co ordination was an actual condition. I am breaking into the film industry and will be very big in a couple of years. Unfortu...

Re: Hello, my son was diagnosed 2 years ago, I think I am undiagnosed,

Hi Fee

There is no chat room per se. I do run a Mon night chat session on Zoom at 8.30pm. This lasts 40 mins but if conversatio is flowing I relaunch subsequent session(s) after Zoom boots us out.

It's quite common that parents come to realise they're affected too.

Re: Difficult getting ready in mornings on time

Hi Cmc Welcome. Glad you've found us I've def found not having the TV on in morning helps, as does the avoidance of temptation to fiddle on my phone (other than to turn alarm off once out of bed). The Snooze button does get hit a couple of times but since my hours are flexible I don't have a formal ...

Re: New Here - Introduction

Dyspraxia does not define our whole and while we may struggle to engage and grasp some things some of the time, we can be very tenacious and see things from a different angle making our approach to problem very effective/even legendary. However, we can be prone to burnout as we are apt to pursuing o...

Re: Dyspraxics are creative people

I think creativity often comes because we so often need to be creative to get by and we often see things differently from a different perspective. People sometimes confuse creativity with having artistic talent but creativity extends more widely. People living with ADHD are often positively fizzing ...

Re: Dyspraxia foundation support

The Dyspraxia Foundation unsurprisingly choose to focus their efforts, expertise and limited resources towards Dyspraxia.

Re: Do I have dyspraxia?

Hi there and welcome Dyspraxia and ADHD are often linked and you definitely list some strong and definite Neurodivergent traits associated with both. I found myself saying yes, yes, Me too, to a lot of the things you've listed. Regrettably awareness of Dyspraxia, even in the UK, is such that many st...

Re: Keeping up in fast-paced classroom discussion

Hi guys, I'm just wondering if anyone can give me some advice and/or relate to this situation. I'm in an online college English class that only meets using Webex. The class basically consists of a conversation about the texts, and the teacher oftentimes calls on people unexpectedly in order to get ...

Re: Hi I'm Jim

I looked into Dyspraxia when Ryan fell off his bike in Dr Who. I had heard about it and suspected that my poor handwriting might be linked to this learning difficulty but my experience of falling off bikes (and into and off things in general) has convinced me. I don't have a diagnosis but at 50 yea...
