Announcing the Launch of Dyspraxia Week 2021 – focusing on the urgent need to improve support for children with dyspraxia in UK primary and secondary schools.

Impact DCD Study

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.

Other projects include identification and early interventions for children with DCD delivered at schools. ...read more

Take part in research investigating navigation abilities in adults

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. ...read more
