Learning disabilities : What is Dyspraxia and how to address it?

    Praxis is the brain’s ability to conceive, organize & carry out a sequence of unfamiliar action   (non-learned movements such as for e.g. imitation). Dyspraxia is an impairment of the organization of movement in an adaptive manner. 

    Children with Dyspraxia have impaired performance of not only skilled movement but also   learning, language, visual perception and behavior regulations.They may have trouble manipulating buttons, scissors, zips or writing tools. Put simply, they know what they want to do, but find it hard to complete their actions. In early childhood, children with Dyspraxia have trouble learning through imitation.

    NOTE : As you check for signs and symptoms of learning disabilities in your child, please understand that these signs may vary from child to child. Every child is unique. No child will definitively exhibit all the symptoms. You can however aim to check if multiple signs described in the presentation above fit the characteristics exhibited by your child, in the event of which a case for a learning disability maybe suspected and assesssed accordingly.
