Re: assessment for dyspraxia biased against highly educated peop

Its a shame that some OTs are not allowed to diagnose dyspraxia, I am currently learning about some tests that Don`t involve IQ but test for various aspects of praxis.

Re: 18 years old, should I go for a diagnosis?

Not sure if this would help but the way forward for diagnosis seems to be via college, do you have any plans to go to college?

Re: Do you need a diagnosis..... and do strategies work?

Thank you Tom, I don`t think she wants to write people off, just that she thinks that by the time a person is an adult they will all ready have coping strategies and so Don`t need a diagnosis only ideas about how to cope with life.

Do you need a diagnosis..... and do strategies work?

I am a dyspraxic OT ... and was discussing whether to diagnose adults ......I have been told I am not allowed to do so.... sorry!
