It’s Dyspraxia Awareness Week and there are many people contributing the bits and pieces to help bring dyspraxia into the limelight.

When … Read moreDyspraxia Awareness Week 7th – 13th October 2018

Intro A bit on the early side, but Autism Awareness Month is close and I thought to myself I really should do a post about it.
