With a condition like dyspraxia there are endless permutations relating to this fascinating subject. It is commonly observed in the Christmas Children's Clinic that many adults in the so-called 'normal' population have unrecognised dyspraxic profiles, struggling through life but not understanding why it is harder work for them than for others around them. They normally cope by providing their own strategies (sometimes by avoidance of a task), ensuring that this hidden and little understood condition does not limit their everyday functioning - but always at a cost. This is the crux of the matter: something needs to be done for the children whose sensory motor challenges are adversely impacting on their everyday lives. This book enhances the understanding of dyspraxia, and, as a result, improves many children's lifestyles and provides some extra 'stepping stones' for a successful future.
