With 1 million adults having DCD/Dyspraxia in the UK and many not being aware of how to gain a diagnosis or practical support, thanks to Professor Amanda Kirby, Do-IT Solutions is launching a free screening tool for Dyspraxia/DCD Awareness Week 9th – 15th October 2016 in association with Dyspraxia Foundation in the UK and Dyspraxia Association in Ireland.
New findings released today (Monday 10th October 2016) reveal that adults with dyspraxia are not receiving the understanding and support they need in the workplace, meaning that employees are underperforming and employers are missing out on the many strengths and talents that people with dyspraxia have to offer.
Join us for a full days conference for parents, professionals and anyone with an interest in dyspraxia/DCD , either personally or professionally (or both!) . Learn about ‘DCD Through the Ages from Research to Practice ‘ with Professor Amanda Kirby, explore practical strategies and resources with Barbara Hunter with her lively ‘Something Old, Something New’ presentation and hear about ‘Living with Dyspraxia: From Adolescence to Adulthood’ with Jonathan Levy, who relives his experiences as a young adult with dyspraxia/DCD
This is the Dyspraxia Foundation’s a response to the following survey results
