Dyspraxia is generally considered to be an impairment or immaturity of the organisation of movement. There may also be problems with language and social skills, perception and thought. It is a neurological disorder which means that messages are not transmitted in the brain in the usual way. It can create many barriers in terms of the child accessing activities in the room.
Children can feel isolated from their peers and frustrated when trying to organise their thoughts, physical movements and engage in physical activity.
Course content includes:
- Exploring the meaning of the term ‘Dyspraxia’.
- How Dyspraxia affects child development.
- Explore ‘Dyspraxia ‘from the perspective of the child.
- Review a range of strategies to support children in your setting.
