Overview

The aim of this text is to promote an understanding of dyspraxia and movement development among professionals who work with children, and also to offer a text which is accessible to parents. It presents a cognitive processing model of dyspraxia from a developmental perspective, and addresses issues of social development in addition to the more easily observable motor planning difficulties which are associated with dyspraxia. The difficulties which may face the dyspraxic child at home and at school are described with strategies for managing their difficulties.

    Worth Reading

    I strongely recommend this book to parents and teachers with children who have Dyspraxia. I expecailly invite parents to share this book with thier childs teachers. Some teachers are not aware of Dyspraxia, and think these children have ADH. Its a great book- it offers insight on childrens lifes and thier diffculites. It also offers plans for teachers and parents to work together, to ensure a smooth and productive education for their children. Please take the time and read this! What a great book!
