Dyspraxia Charities

Dyspraxia charities are a rarity, although the positive can’t be overlooked because there is one dedicated to Dyspraxia and DCD. This awesome charity is the Dyspraxia Foundation.

Charities - Dyspraxia Foundation

“The Dyspraxia Foundation is a country Wide charity, founded in 1987 as the Dyspraxia Trust by two mothers who met at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. After being told that their children had Dyspraxia they were astonished and dismayed to discover that no facilities existed to help or inform parents and children with the condition. They decided to form their own group to help others to help themselves.”

They have the mission of raising awareness and spreading their wealth of information and guidance. This information is universal and is for anyone who needs it; parents, children, schools, and the medical profession. Dyspraxia is easily forgotten or dismissed, on the other hand with them in operation, they won’t let that happen!

They do amazing work for Dyspraxia, so please check out their website:


If you have any questions, problems or need help then they are on hand to assist your needs.

If you wish to support the Dyspraxia Foundation either with a donation or by buying from their gift shop then CLICK HERE.

While the list is short, should any more charities crop up I’ll be sure to add them to this page, however the Dyspraxia Foundation is the only one for the moment.

Dyspraxia Awareness Week

In addition to the struggles we with dyspraxia face, acceptance and understanding is a real battle. With this in mind, awareness is extremely vital for us. Which is why every year there’s an awareness week to put dyspraxia in the spotlight. This is normally the second week of October every year. Dyspraxia affects a similar amount of people as dyslexia, but is still fairly unknown. Gradually this is improving and it is a slow process but this is why the week exists to help push dyspraxia into the media’s eye.
