Driving Test Changes in April to aid people with disabilities

Maybe a driver who is or has recently learned will do a write up for Dyspraxia and Life magazine and this forum

I passed in 1966 - there was not a seperate theory test then!

Re: Hey Guys! Im newbie

Hi Ricardo, good to see this community - i'm a newbie too Hi Andrew, Thanks for your story. I was diagnosed a few years ago whilst studying a masters degree - I was 42. It really hit me hard. I thought maybe that was why I've never found the right person, but reading your story, and looking at my o...

Re: Please watch. Opinions appreciated

I hope that you are involved with the Dyspraxia and Life Magazine and maybe also a memeber of The dyspraxia Foundation - to be more involved. I mostly stay on the sidelines myself now - but was active at one time. Also remember to to subscribe to messages and and threads to get emails telling you wh...

Re: "Does anyone else have a hard time keeping friends?"

Thanks to Tom and Xenavire for replying. I had not subscribed to this thread - although actually I believed that I had automatically subscribed by replying but that is not the case. To be sure of having any replies emailed I now realise, that I need to scroll to the bottom of my post and ✓. ========...

Re: Hey Guys! Im newbie

Hi Ricardo - thanks for joining - I hope you will want to take part - I have been rather quiet here recently, but I realise such quietness is not good for me. I am seventy-one, live in Essex, England. I realised I was dyspraxic around 1999. Now go out very little and am happy with an online live. I ...

"Does anyone else have a hard time keeping friends?"

Please excuse me for starting a thread with a topic that will be familiar to many members. This is a question asked in a Facebook Dyspraxia Forum and so far it has attracted a lot of responses. Initially I answered thus: - "I have given up trying." AND I had a response from a different person saying...

Re: Hi!

Thanks for the post, I also struggle with addictions.

I suspect mental illness can result from trying to fit in with society despite having a hidden neurological disability and that addictive behaviours may also be behaviours that mask neurological disability..

I am dyspraxic and dyslexic.

Re: How did you meet your significant other?

Wish you well with that. I went to University when I was 24 & had been married 3years, the course, pre entry social work training, was demanding because one's understandings of human behaviour were severely tested. I was very glad that I had formed a lifetime partnership before I did that training, ...

"Being floppy and unstable"

I forget about this characteristic - thus described in a "Checklist of dyspraxic symptoms" in the book "Dyspraxia: Dyspraxic Adults Surviving in a Non-Dyspraxic World" (Kindle Location 173)" I was reminded of it going through the book. I first recognised it - though not the cause - when handholding ...

I have been interviewed over the phone. It was very agreeable and I am glad Chris is researching dyspraxia, I hope more folk do likewise.

Re: Did anyone see the derogatory story about a teacher with Dyspraxia who lost his employment Tribunal

I would not have known about it but for Pete Guest's work in drawing it to attention, I see he has reported it to the media regulator and I am looking forward to discovering the outcome of the referral.
