Our helpline is here to help you! Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to offer telephone support. Support is still available via e-mail, and you can contact us securely and in confidence via our helpline form which you can find here: https://dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/helpline/ We are committed to reinstating the telephone helpline as soon as it is safe enough for our staff and volunteers to return to the head office.

Spring is (finally!) making an appearance in the UK, so why not get creative and plant a flower in our Spring Garden?
You, your colleagues, family, friends, anyone and everyone you know can get involved by planting a virtual crocus, tulip, or daffodil and watching as our garden blooms with every donation. Whether just for fun, in memory of a loved one, or in hope for a future, our virtual spring garden is designed to raise vital funds to enable us to sustain our services and achieve that little bit more; from promoting better diagnostic and treatment facilities for those who have dyspraxia, to helping education and health professionals to assist those with dyspraxia/DCD, to doing all we can to promote awareness and understanding of dyspraxia/DCD throughout society.
I’m Iona Hemmings, I recently graduated from the University of Warwick with a BSc in Psychology and am currently training to be a Primary school teacher at the University of Birmingham. Alongside teacher training I’m conducting some research with Dr. Jagjeet Jutley-Neilson who is an Associate Professor at the University of Warwick. Our research aims to explore the relationship between parental/carer reporting of their children’s Dyspraxia/Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) symptomology and Sensory Sensitivity Profiles. We are also planning on exploring the impact of additional diagnoses of Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or ADHD symptomology on this relationship. To collect our data, we are using an online survey – https://warwick.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bgBusUKrRwLj23r – which takes about 20-30 minutes for a parent/carer to complete.
We are proud to share this blog from Sarah Chicken to mark Neurodiversity Week. Sarah is a member of the Dyspraxia Foundation Research Panel.
Unfortunately, due to a few technical issues with our website, we have not been able to share as much as we could on our website this week, but we have shared lots of stories across our social media platforms. Including, Mikey talking about Verbal Dyspraxia and Newly appointed Local Co-ordinator, Jo, talks about her lived experience.
