Dyspraxia, sometimes known as developmental coordination disorder or the clumsy child syndrome, very often co-exists with dyslexia.
Someone who is dyspraxic may have difficulty planning and performing tasks that require fine motor skills, such as writing, tying shoe laces or doing sports.
It also affects the person’s ability to plan and sequence information, and working memory. Words such as clumsy, forgetful and disorganised are often used to describe them. This article helps us understand more about dyspraxia and how it affects one's daily life.
