Dyspraxia

Dyspraxia

Complex neurological disorders, including Dyspraxia, are often reported to be more prevalent amongst Deaf people, which is why we believe it’s important to cover these in the suite of courses and resources we offer.

Dyspraxia is a Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD) which affects organisation and planning of physical movement. The essential feature is the impairment of motor function that significantly interferes with academic achievement or activities of daily living.

This easy-to-access online workshop explores several interventions you can put in place to support the needs of Deaf/SEN learners and is designed to help you:

  • Gain a clear understanding of what Dyspraxia is and how it can affect the development of age-appropriate skills.
  • Grasp the complex challenges facing Deaf learners who also display neurological disorders such as Dyspraxia.
  • Put interventions in place to support the development of learners who are displaying common presentations of Dyspraxia.
