During Dyspraxia Awareness Week 2019 we focused on Dyspraxia in Adulthood. We are still deep within our awareness year focus on adults and are proud to re-share all our resources from that week for ease of access to everyone!

We asked adults what does having a diagnosis of Dyspraxia/DCD mean to you? As always we where overwhelmed with your response and have created this fact sheet for all to share.
We’ve also produced a fact sheet for anyone involved in Post-16 education (16+) with some hints, tips and advice and more!
We’ve additionally produced this brand new guide on going to University! Packed full of tips and tricks, what support you can ask for a lot more!
We are pleased to have pooled together a range of apps for your mobile device as recommended by other adults! The range of apps will help with navigation, organisation, mental health and voice to text. A big thank you goes out to Pete Guest for putting this all together for us in this amazing format!
Living with dyspraxia as an adult can make it difficult to work, do chores, drive and much more. It can also make it difficult to manage your finances. As part of Dyspraxia Awareness Week, we have an exclusive guide from the Money Advice Service, discussing how people affected by Dyspraxia can manage their money.
Our thanks to Dr Judith Gentle and our Dyspraxia Foundation Youth Champion Imogen Rowe for producing this first draft of a useful information sheet on Driving with Dyspraxia.
This is a working document which we aim to develop further.
On 26th July, the Dyspraxia Foundation called for Case Studies from adults living with dyspraxia to support Dyspraxia Awareness Week, 6 – 12th October 2019.
