Hi I’m new to this I’m not dyspraxia but my daughter is she is an adult now 30. I am really desperate to get her some help . She was diagnosed as a child which was fine when she was at home. She is a mum now with 3 children under 6 and she is really struggling with no support. How do we get a re diagnosis for her now she is an adult. Through the nhs if possible I’m in the Stockport Cheshire area thanks

Getting an assessment on the NHS as an adult is regrettably v difficult. Furthermore, if she has a childhood diagnosis, they'll probably just point to that.

Regrettably dyspraxia specific post-diagnosis aftercare and support is pretty much non-existent so it may be worth her trying to pursue other non specific help and support avenues.

There are plenty of Dyspraxia peer support groups and these are probably a better option.

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.
