New: Parents Toolkit
Today we are also launching our new Parents Toolkit. Priced £7.99
This toolkit was developed by the Dyspraxia Foundation for parents/carers of young people with dyspraxia (also known as developmental coordination disorder – DCD), a condition that affects gross and fine motor coordination in children and adults and that can also affect speech, organisational and planning skills, memory and perception. The toolkit offers a wealth of information and practical suggestions to help parents address the daily challenges experienced by children with dyspraxia/DCD at home, at school and in their leisure activities.
Essential reading to help parents/carers build their child’s independence and resilience, ensuring they can reach their potential in all areas of life. Chapters include: accessing professional help; how parents/carers can help at home; working in partnership with schools; supporting your child’s wellbeing; and supporting your child’s participation in social and leisure activities.
You can download the toolkit for Kindle devices, and across Android and iOS with the Amazon Kindle App today!
