Dyspraxia is a chronic disability that affects coordination. It is also known as developmental coordination disorder. 2-6% of people have dyspraxia. Four times as many males than females have it.
It is sometimes called 'clumsy child syndrome', but adults have it too. People with dyspraxia (dyspraxics) often have other disabilities such as ADHD, autism….
There is no single cause of Dyspraxia - there can be many reasons why someone will have it. It may not be diagnosed until later in childhood or sometimes teenage years. It cannot be cured - people will live with it for life.
