Re: About to get fired, need some advice.

Hi Keepgoingup2, does your boss know you have dyspraxia? if yes/no, as far as I am aware it doesn't matter. I would seek out Citizens Advice on Disability Discrimination Act. as if your boss decides enough is enough. my problem is definitely speed, as my left hand doesn't speak to my right hand, and...

Re: Can adults/people with dyspraxia type and use cell phones (Needing advice and answers)

yes they can type, even without good hand-eye co-ordination. I am probably four times the speed on the computer than I would be if writing this by hand. still not fast, but an awful lot better than if I was writing it. the trouble that I have found with the NHS is they can't be bothered unless somet...

Re: Does anyone here know sign language?

Re: Learning to play the guitar?

also being left handed meaning that I had to have the guitar strings changed so that they were the other way around, but my main problem was the strength that I used to pluck at was a little too hard, so the teacher learned how to change loads of strings rather quickly by the end, a couple of times ...

Re: Learning to play the guitar?

I learned to play the guitar when I was about 10, as the teacher was doing it in school. my main problems were spacial awareness, so things like knowing how far to move my hands, where to move my fingers without looking at them, and general things like I would be a chord to a word behind everyone el...

Re: escalters

Yes, think most of us will agree that we have had fun with Escalators in out time, the trouble is now they switch them on to go super sonic as well, like one shop I know does, so it is just safer taking the escalator. and I also find that I am worse if I stop walking as well, and think about my timi...

Re: Hello from Perth & Kinross

Welcome to the forum David, try asking your parents if they got you tested when you were younger, as I got my diagnosis in a medical report from October 86. my parents were always trying to get me tested to find out what was wrong with me. and as I didn't really care at the time, as school was going...

Re: Dog walking

Hi Nicky, I wouldn't worry about the extendable lead, the only thing you got to watch is that it doesn't go slack, my parents used to have a springer spaniel, and would have to take him out on a chock chain lead, he never learned the more you pull the tighter the lead would get around his neck. so a...

Welcome to the forum, yes I always have problems with keys etc. the only way I manage to get around it is to put my keys in a specific place all the time, so that I can find them again, the problems begin when looking for something at last minute after picking up my keys. then they vanish into thin ...
