Find out what exactly dyspraxia/DCD is and the current approaches to diagnosis.
Learn how to recognise students with dyspraxia; familiarise yourself with the effects of the condition, including secondary consequences; and equip yourself with a range of teaching tools and classroom strategies to support pupils with this ‘hidden disability’.
Afroza Talukdar works as a specialist teacher, providing advice to mainstream teachers on how best to address the needs of children with motor co-ordination difficulties. She cuts through the confusion of different terminologies and overlapping difficulties and explains how you can make a real difference in helping students with this disorder to achieve their potential.
By the end of the book you will understand dyspraxic learners’ complex difficulties and feel confident about developing a dyspraxia-friendly classroom within which they can be addressed.
“For the non-specialist classroom teacher and SENCO, this book provides authoritative and straightforward approaches to helping children who display dyspraxic/DCD characteristics.”
– Heather Burtonwood, Deputy Head/SENCO, Thorp Primary School
