Dyspraxia

Developmental coordination disorder (DCD) also known as developmental dyspraxia and clumsy child syndrome is a chronic neurological disorder beginning in childhood that can affect planning of movements and co-ordination as a result of brain messages not being accurately transmitted to the body. Up to 50% of those with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) also have DCD. It may be diagnosed in the absence of other motor or sensory impairments like cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.’
