GLOSSARY

Throughout this blog I may have used many words that are strange, new or confusing (or all three!). So I have made a list with the word(s) and their meaning. If I have missed any words out then do tell and I can add it to the list.

 

ADD: Attention Deficit Disorder 

ADHD: Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder.

DCD: Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (Alternative title to Dyspraxia)

Dyspraxia: The ‘condition’s’ current name.

Dyspraxic: A person /individual who has been diagnosed with Dyspraxia.

Fine Motor Control: The ‘little’ movements (Like tracking something with eyes, clicking and shoe laces).

Gross Motor Control: The ‘big’ movements of the body (such as moving an arm or leg).

Learning Difference: instead of describing a person with a negative label to make out that they are unable to do something (Disabilities, conditions, learning problems etc). Learning Difference is a way of making it sound more positive.

Occupation Therapist: A professional who seeks out learning disabilities in people and brings it to the person’s attention. They can also offer guidance and support for the individual.

Self Esteem: What a person thinks/feels about themselves.
