Sequences of coordinated movement

2-6%

for boys to be diagnosed

Of the population are diagnosed with dyspraxia

Poor / difficult

Dys

Affects fine and gross motor skills and coordination

May have disorganised thoughts, poor time management and planning issues

May have difficulty with sequencing

May have articulation and speech problems

What is it? A developmental coordination disorder (DCD)

To be diagnosed with dyspraxia, you must have motor performance that is substantially below expected levels. These must significantly and persistently interfere with activities of daily living or academic achievement. You cannot suddenly devlop or grow out of this condition.Onset of systoms therefore presents during early development. Sometimes dyspraxia runs in families.

How is a diagnosis made?

3 factors of PRAXIS

IdeationKnowing what you need to do

Motor planningDirecting and organising movement

ExecutionBeing able to carry it out successfully

Key facts and statistics

Up to 50%

of people diagnosed with dyslexia are also diagnosed with dyspraxia

Dyspraxia is not as well researched as dyslexia. Therefore, it is often picked up later than dyslexia or is misdiagnosed as dyslexia.

Bilateral Integration and Sequencing Deficit A mild form of Sensory-based Motor Disorder that involves: • Difficulty using the two sides of the body in a coordinated manner & sequencing motor tasks • Poor vestibular & proprioceptive processing.

Two levels of dysfunction in praxis have been identified:

Somatodyspraxia A more severe form of Sensory-based Motor Disorder that involves:• Difficulty in formulating action plans; a problem with the motor-planning of new, rather than habitual, movements• Poor tactile, vestibular & proprioceptive processing

Dyspraxia and the senses

Tactile- Tells you where and what you are touching so we do not have to rely on visual cues. This also impacts the ability to assess if a situation is threatening or non-threatening and can cause a fight or flight response. Vestibular- Sense of movement. The vestibular system is crucial in supporting the body to remain upright and to navigate its enviornment against gravity.Proprioception- Sense of position This impacts our perception or awareness of the position and movement of the body. it enables us to judge limb movements and positions and the ability to carry out actions without looking. Dyspraxia will impact all of these things and can cause them to present in different ways compared to atypical individuals.
