£30,000 for 30 Years
Become a 'Friend of Dyspraxia'
The vision of the Dyspraxia Foundation is a world in which dyspraxia/DCD is understood and where the condition is not a barrier to opportunity and fulfilment.
2018 marks the 30th anniversary since we started raising awareness of dyspraxia. We’re proud of our achievements but as a forward-thinking charity, we’re already focusing on the next 30 years.
To make a great start, over the next 12 months we are aiming to raise £30,000, broken down, that’s £1,000 for every year of our existence.
Who are we? - A brief history of the Dyspraxia Foundation
30 years ago, two mothers came together with a vision of a brighter and more understanding future for their sons. They’d met at a physiotherapy group for what was then known as ‘clumsy children’ and they found that their sons both had motor development difficulties, but without a clear reason or diagnosis. After later being told that their children had dyspraxia, they were dismissed to discover that no facilities existed to help or inform parents about the condition.
They responded to a BBC radio programme which highlighted the condition and were quickly swamped with letters and phone calls from people desperate to find others in the same situation. These two mothers worked hard to respond to every letter and every phone call and from then the Dyspraxia Trust was formed. 30 years later, the Dyspraxia Foundation as it is now known, remains the UK’s only registered charity dedicated to supporting people of all ages with dyspraxia and is regularly consulted by education and health professionals.
