Dyspraxia, DC Disorder, and Academic Implications


Product Description

Dyspraxia, Developmental Coordination Disorder, and Academic Implications

The Dyspraxia Foundation defines dyspraxia as a form of developmental coordination disorder that effects, in addition to motor coordination, the ability to plan, organize, and carry out movements and sequences of activities in everyday life activities. Not only effecting gross and fine motor skills, dyspraxia can also impact oral motor skills, reading, and perception and thought processes. This unique, 1.5-hour workshop digs deep into not only the motoric implications of dyspraxia, but also the co-existing challenges that can impact school-aged children.
