What is Dyspraxia ?



Dyspraxia is a neurologically based disorder of the process of ideation, motor planning, and execution, which may affect any or all areas of development. It is inconsistent, and affects each person in different ways, at different stages of development, and to different degrees. Dyspraxia can be acquired through damage to the brain by accident, stroke, or illness, or it can occur from an early age, thus impairing development, and from no obvious cause. It is a hidden handicap as, under normal circumstances, children with Dyspraxia may appear no different from their peers. Diagnosis can only be made by an appropriate professional.
