In our second video for World Autism Awareness Week, Gail talks about her experiences with dyspraxia- in the past referred to as ‘Clumsy Child Syndrome. Like autism, dyspraxia is a Neurodivergent condition.
People with dyspraxia have issues learning fine and gross motor skills, planning and coordination. Some of which Gail notes she has dealt with.
These instances can be frustrating, so it is normal to have some support in learning things that appear easy to everyone else- such as tying your shoelace!
People with dyspraxia have few problems in the workplace, as long as you disclose your condition, which leads to the right support being provided and any allowances to be made.
