So What Actually is Dyspraxia?
Dyspraxia is a neurological condition which affects a person both mentally and physically. Dyspraxic people have lower than average coordination and fine motor skills. This means things like driving, tying shoelaces (I still can’t really tie mine), and even walking in a straight line can be incredibly difficult for a dyspraxic person.
As for mental difficulties, dyspraxic people often have poor short term memory and can struggle to follow simple sets of instructions. Thought processes can be a bit different from the norm. The way it was described to me when I was a child was that thoughts like to take the scenic route around my brain. It can take me a bit longer to understand things but I’ll get there in the end.
