I am Dr. Charikleia Sinani, a chartered physiotherapist and senior lecturer based at York St John University. My research and clinical expertise are in children with neurodevelopment disorders particularly Children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) which is sometimes referred to as ‘Dyspraxia’ in the UK and children with Cerebral palsy. I have carried out a number of research projects to gain a better understanding on how children with DCD plan and organise their movements, how they learn sequence of movements and the associations between movement problems and psychosocial symptoms. Other projects include identification and early interventions for children with DCD delivered at schools.
My name is Judith Gentle and I am a parent of two sons, one of whom has Dyspraxia. I am also a Dr of psychology and have been lecturing at The University of Surrey since 2015, where I teach on the Cognitive and Developmental psychology modules. My primary area of research is Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD/Dyspraxia) which is often referred to as a ‘Cinderella syndrome’ due the lack of knowledge about the condition. However, given that DCD affects approximately 5% of the population this is an area of much needed research. I would therefore like to invite you to take part in a new study investigating the navigational skills for adults with and without DCD.
