Hello! Welcome to my blog.
I was diagnosed with dyspraxia at the age of 30, so in this blog I’ll share my experiences of living with dyspraxia, diagnosis, the impact of dyspraxia on my life and tips which have helped me and those around me.
I’m currently a university student and also working part-time, so here I’ll be talking about dyspraxia and:
- Paid work
- Daily living
And who knows what else along the way!
A note on language
Some people prefer to describe themselves as dyspraxic; others prefer to describe themselves as a person with dyspraxia. I tend to alternate between the two.
You might also see the term DCD around. DCD is short for Developmental Co-ordination Disorder. Professionals especially tend to use this rather than dyspraxia, as it’s more tightly defined. However most people I know use the term dyspraxia, and dyspraxia is often thought of as a broader term than DCD, incorporating symptoms such as sensory processing difficulties and poor working memory. To learn more about dyspraxia, see my post “What is Dyspraxia?“
I hope you’ll join me
If you like what you’re hearing, come join me as we navigate adult life. Hopefully we’ll both learn more along the way. I’d love to hear about your experiences, too.
If there’s anything you’d like to see me blog about, let me know in the comments sections, or say hi on Twitter @dyspraxicbee.
