What is the overlap between dyspraxia and dyslexia?

There is a lot of overlap between the signs and symptoms of dyspraxia and dyslexia: research suggests that 52% of children with dyslexia have features of dyspraxia (Kaplan 1998). The term dyslexia is used to describe a difficulty learning to read, write and spell. People with dyslexia often have poor organisational skills and may have difficulty with language (spoken and heard) and with maths. Like dyspraxia, the term dyslexia is used to describe a set of symptoms. It is usually identified by educational experts, and help focuses on specialist teaching of reading, writing and spelling.
