The Motor Development and Impact Lab (MoDI Lab) at the University of Surrey would like to invite you to volunteer for an online study investigating how individuals with dyspraxia or DCD control their actions. This includes movements, learning and decision-making processes. Have you ever thought about your efforts when performing daily activities to make sure that you perform to the best of your ability? How do you stop your difficulties from getting in the way? Is it just about your movements, or does it affect other activities such as learning and decision making? These are some of the questions that the new study is hoping to address in both children and adults with dyspraxia or DCD. If you are interested maybe you can volunteer and contribute to this project. You can volunteer to take part yourself or with your child/children.
So we can produce a website which meets the requirements of the community that we serve we are asking everyone to complete a small survey (around 5-10 minutes).
The survey is open to everyone who uses our website; members, non-members, professionals or anyone trying to find out about Dyspraxia.
Last week we have a Facebook Live with Dr Ryan Stevenson from Bright Heart Education discussing Home Learning and offering a variety of Tips and Advice during this current period of home learning.

The Dyspraxia Foundation has recently been approached to support a project to find out how sports clubs can make their stadia more accessible to people who are neurodiverse. The research is being conducted by NatCen Social Research, an independent and non-profit institute, on behalf of the Sports and Grounds Safety Authority (SGSA) and Level Playing Field (LPF). The research project has been approved by the Foundation’s Research Panel of Advisors.
The Dyspraxia Foundation virtual office and dedicated email helpline service will close on Tuesday, 22nd December and reopen at 9am on Thursday 7th January 2021.
We would like to close the year with our heartfelt thanks to all those who have supported our work during this very difficult year including our members, local co-ordinators and contacts who help raise awareness in the community along with our Youth Champions, Ambassadors, Trustees and Fundraisers and bank of volunteers who support all we do.
While the Dyspraxia Foundation does not wish to actively police its social media accounts, it does encourage all people using them to be civil, positive and supportive of other users. The Dyspraxia Foundation will remove posts and ban posters who either breach our social median and anti-bullying policies or target other users for abuse.
