Description

Dyslexia and Dyspraxia Awareness Course – Bespoke face-to-face training for Foster Carers and Social Workers

Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty that primarily affects the skills involved in accurate and fluent word reading and spelling. This can affect literacy development, mathematics, memory, organisation and sequencing skills to varying degrees. Dyslexia can occur at any level of intellectual development. It is neurological in origin and is often seen to run in families.

Dyspraxia is a form of developmental coordination disorder (DCD). It is a common disorder affecting fine and/or gross motor coordination in children and occurs across the range of intellectual abilities. Individuals may vary in how their difficulties present and these may change over time depending on environmental demands and life experiences.

Children with either condition may present with difficulties with self-care, writing, reading, IT skills, riding a bike as well as other educational and recreational activities.
