Developmental Coordination Disorder (Dyspraxia)
How to Help
Author 1: Susan Lloyd
Author 2: Laura Graham
Developmental Coordination Disorder (Dyspraxia) offers a complete introduction to this complex and often misunderstood topic. DCD (historically sometimes called ‘dyspraxia’) is a frequently under-detected condition. It mainly affects physical coordination but also impacts on many other areas of life. It is often seen as an ‘enigma’ as there is little consensus regarding definitions and terminology. This book dispels myths about DCD.
It looks at the issues, challenges and experiences commonly faced by a young person with DCD – and how parents, carers, teachers and schools can help. The book is part of the How to Help series of books which explores issues commonly faced by children and young people at home and at school.
