Supporting the emotional needs of young people with dyspraxia/DCD (2018) – a parents’ view
Dyspraxia Awareness Week (7 – 13th October) this year focusses on supporting the emotional needs of young people with dyspraxia/DCD. To help raise awareness of the emotional impact of dyspraxia and the support needed to promote good mental health we are launching a survey to highlight the difficulties faced by those with this often misunderstood condition.
