Adult Dyspraxia/DCD Assessment
Dyspraxia, also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), involves difficulties in planning and carrying out fine and gross motor activities such as self-care tasks, handwriting, team sports, cycling, etc.
Many adults eventually master basic movement skills or have found ways to compensate for their difficulties.
However, executive function challenges, such as time-management, organisation, self-regulation, etc. tend to become more apparent. These will often affect multiple areas of one's life, such as education, employment, household management and/or social life.
This than can have a negative impact on feelings of accomplishment, fulfilment, self-worth and wellbeing.
Occupational Therapy assessment is a good starting point to find out if DCD is involved. The assessment provides a better understanding of the underlying difficulties and how to handle them.
Coaching for adults with neurodiversity, including DCD, is available as well.
