We have so many wonderful fundraisers, increasing awareness of Dyspraxia/DCD and to raise much needed funds for the charity. The Dyspraxia Foundation is purely funded by your fundraising, purchasing memberships or by becoming a friend.
Last week Wednesday, a group of representatives from the Dyspraxia Foundation attended a parliamentary discussion and giving their own voice to raise awareness and giving evidence of good practice and barriers to employment for those with dyspraxia.
We hear from many people with Dyspraxia that due to poor coordination many people find it hard to join in with more active activities. We also hear that many get tired easily or worry about how other people react to their poor motor skills.
A Happy Easter from everyone at the Dyspraxia Foundation!
This Easter Weekend why not take a few minutes of your day to join the Dyspraxia Foundation?
Without your memberships, donations, attending our conferences and fundraising we simply wouldn’t be able to continue to support those with Dyspraxia/DCD and their friends and family. Please watch our video and add your voice to ours and let’s all raise the profile of Dyspraxia/DCD.
Today was an exciting day! On the Jeremy Vine Show (Just to confuse matters slightly, Paddy O’Connell was sitting in for Jeremy today), Lottie Jenkins, alongside Dr Sarah Jarvis talked, and raised awareness of Dyspraxia, which included many people phoning in afterwards!
We are delighted to confirm that our London Conference / AGM takes place on Saturday 24th June 2017!

This will be followed by a day of talks for parents, carers, young people (16—25) and adults with dyspraxia, professionals in health and education, teachers, SENCos, Learning Support Staff, employers and anyone with an interest in neurodiversity.
The Dyspraxia Foundation 2017-18 annual membership is here! Join, or renew, your membership for the next 12 months to add your voice to ours to support and raise awareness of Dyspraxia/DCD.

Demand for our services is increasing, and at the heart of what we do, we aspire for a world in which all those affected by dyspraxia/DCD are enabled to achieve their full potential in life. We cannot achieve this goal without the generosity of people like you, and that’s where our Friends group can make a real difference.
