What is Dyspraxia?

Dyspraxia (also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)), is a neurological condition that affects motor skills, coordination, and planning. Children with dyspraxia may struggle with tasks like handwriting, tying shoelaces, or participating in sports.

At Bruern Abbey School, we see dyspraxia as an opportunity for growth and development. We are dedicated to supporting your son's journey, nurturing their self-esteem, and helping them unlock their full potential. Together, we can make a meaningful impact on your son's education.

What are the signs?

Identifying the signs of dyspraxia early on is crucial for effective support. Common signs include difficulties with fine and gross motor skills, poor hand-eye coordination, and challenges in organising tasks.

How Does Dyspraxia Impact Learning?

Dyspraxia can affect a pupil's ability to perform tasks requiring fine motor skills, such as writing neatly or manipulating small objects. Our school employs specialised techniques to enhance fine motor skills and facilitate smoother learning experiences.

Children with dyspraxia may have difficulties with gross motor skills, making activities like sports and physical education challenging. We focus on nurturing physical development in a supportive and understanding environment.
