Dyspraxia is a disorder that affects motor skill development, strength and coordination—and may be the reason behind your child’s difficulties. While dyspraxia is not a learning disability (LD), many children with LD also show signs of dyspraxia.
Children with dyspraxia may find it difficult to:
Gross (Large) Motor Skills
Fine (Small) Motor Skills
If your child struggles through simple activities like brushing teeth, knows the correct words to use but can’t get the right “mouth muscle” to coordinate while speaking, and tends to bump into things or has poor grip, these are enough warning signs for you to take them to a paediatrician. Seeking medical attention will help identify and address the child’s disability soon and ensure better results.
