Dyspraxia is truly a hidden handicap that may go undiagnosed until adulthood. A child with dyspraxia has problems co-ordinating his or her movements, and will appear clumsy. This informative, practical book is intended to help parents and teachers, with innovative ideas that they can use to encourage the child and help to improve motor skills. It looks at the child at every stage, through early years at home, at nursery school, primary and secondary school and into adulthood. Most parents are desperate for information about causes and symptoms and that information is given in simple terms, as well as information about diagnostic procedures and the characteristics of the condition. While dyspraxia cannot be cured, it can be overcome and its effects minimised. With the aid of this book a parent can ensure that their child is equipped with strategies to lead as normal a life as possible.
