Join us at Parallel London 2017! An all-inclusive event!

Are you looking for an event to raise awareness of dyspraxia and sponsorship for the Dyspraxia Foundation? Is our usual British 10k event overwhelming and daunting? Or just looking for something the whole family can take part in? Then why not come join us on Sunday 3rd September in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the Parallel London event. In 2016 trustee Matt, his girlfriend Rosie, youth member (and blogger) alongside Natalie, youth member (and blogger) and her dad took part in the first event. All reported back on how wonderfully inclusive the event is, people of all ages, abilities and disabilities took part across a variety of events from 100m to 10km! There is no time limit, everyone is allowed to complete their distance and the pace that suits them! Note that pushchairs, wheelchairs and all other mobility devices are fully allowed, when they say all-inclusive they really mean it!

Research Participants – University of Surrey

The University of Surrey is conducting research looking to understand the mental health and thinking abilities in adolescents with and without Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)/Dyspraxia.

In the study, parents will be asked to complete some questionnaires about their child’s motor ability and thinking abilities (e.g. planning and memory). Your child will also be asked to complete a questionnaire about their mental health. We may also ask to visit your child at home to administer a short assessment of vocabulary and reasoning skills.
