Dyspraxia is defined as an inability in making and co-ordinating the precise movements needed for producing clear speech. It is a developmental co-ordination disorder which cannot be cured. It causes your kid to perform less than expected for their age. They also might appear clumsy in struggling through daily activities.

Prognosis of Dyspraxia

Dyspraxia cannot be treated but it can be improved as the child grows. But for the improvement to take place the condition should be diagnosed early and intervention should be provided in time. Because the child’s brain develops rapidly during the first few years of life, the changes within the brain should be detected as soon as possible to provide accurate course of therapy. Also, the child’s brain makes new connection with the nervous system during this time to develop new skills and abilities.

Prognosis of Developmental Dyspraxia

An early diagnosis and treatment for dyspraxia ensures a greater chance of improvement. An appropriate treatment approach is focussed on how the child or the affected adult can be helped to manage and deal with difficulties that dyspraxia causes in daily activities. The therapy should also aim at improving the quality of life and symptoms.

The child’s self-confidence, feelings of belonging and helping them to participate in daily activities should be worked on. Talk to your GP or health visitor - or a nurse, doctor or special educational needs co-ordinator at your child's school - if you have any concerns about your child's health or development.
