Liz, my daughter has Dyspraxia, I've only met one adult that had and discussed this issue.
So either miss call me, or could you PM sum info on it, please. Yes I know stuff, but want to confirm/add to the knowledge. )t'

This is really interesting and makes me think what I can do. I can build a Dry Stone wall, lay a patio, drive a tractor, ( well it's been a while.) I have raised two teanagers so have all the skills that go with that. I knit toys and baby clothes, enjoys most crafts but not card making, play the flute. I am a TA in a special needs school so have a working knowledge of orthotics, physiotherepy, speech and language therepy, ASD. I am qualified to teach people with special needs to swim. Have level 2 BSL. Speak French and German, ( Can get by) My OH is a cheff so can cook a bit. Can drive. A bit of DIY, I'd rather not spend money when I could give it ago.
