About Us: Aims and Policies

 The objectives of the Foundation are:

  • To support individuals and families affected by dyspraxia/DCD.
  • To promote better diagnostic and treatment facilities for those who have dyspraxia/DCD.
  • To help professionals in health and education to assist those with Dyspraxia/DCD.
  • To promote awareness and understanding of dyspraxia/DCD.

Each year the Foundation answers approximately 10,000 enquiries and distributes more then 20,000 leaflets about the condition. The Foundation seeks every opportunity to increase understanding of dyspraxia/DCD, particularly among professionals in health and education.

The Foundation is run by fewer than six full-time equivalent paid staff and is supported extensively by volunteers. Its work is funded entirely by voluntary donation and membership subscriptions.

What else do we do?

  • Publish leaflets, booklets, books and guides for parents, those who have dyspraxia and professionals.
  • Organises conferences and talks about dyspraxia and related topics for parents, carers and professionals.
  • Supports a network of local groups across the United Kingdom.
  • Supports a group for adults who have dyspraxia/DCD.
