Dyspraxia Support: Getting external support and help for Dyspraxia is a little tricky. On the other hand, it is easier if you know where to look. On this page I have outlined some places and resources to help signpost anyone who needs it. Hope this is useful to you or someone you know.
Dyspraxia Foundation (www.dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/)
The charity organisation, Dyspraxia Foudnation, is a great place. They offer support, information, guidance and resources to those who need it. Furthmore, the help they provide is not limited to just people with dyspraxia but families, schools, and work places, etc.
A good place to go with any worries or concerns is your doctor/GP. Even if they can’t help you directly, they should be able to signpost you to someone who can help. While this does seem like an obvious suggestion, not everyone automatically thinks to see a doctor/GP for support.
Teenagers and Young Adults
Dyspraxic Teens Forum (www.dyspraxicteens.org.uk/forum/)
If you’re a teenager or young adult in need of support then I recommend joining this forum. There are many people on there to help support and listen to problems (Even problems that aren’t Dyspraxic related!). However, please read their terms and conditions before signing up. Additionally, views and opinions expressed on their site is not affiliated with Dyspraxic Fantastic.
Dyspraxia Foundation Youth Facebook Group (www.facebook.com/groups/DyspraxiaFoundationYouth/?fref=ts)
The Youth Group is for people with dyspraxia aged between 13 to 25 that want help and guidance. The group’s admin is a team of Dyspraxia Foundation Employees. Working along side them are a group of volenteers who have dyspraxia and have dedicated some of their time to assist the group. I am one of volunteers for the group.
Dyspraxic Adults Forum (dyspraxicadults.org.uk/)
If you’re an adult in need of support then I recommend joining this forum. There are many people on there to help support and listen to problems (Even problems that aren’t Dyspraxic related!). However, please read their terms and conditions before signing up. Additionally, views and opinions expressed on their site is not affiliated with Dyspraxic Fantastic.
Other Useful Websites (www.dyspraxicfantastic.com/useful-websites/)
There are many other websites and blogs out there which can offer various kinds of information and points of view.
If I find any other useful websites or resources I’ll add them to this page. I hope it has been useful in someway to you and please pass it onto anyone youfeel will benefit from this.
Thanks and good luck!
