Defining Dyspraxia

By Aimee York, B.OccThy

Dyspraxia affects many children and can be devastating to parents and families to see throughout a child’s development. It holds children back, especially in an academic setting, and without intervention, can lean to lowered self esteem, poor academic grades, poor social skills and some mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.
Occupational therapy and psychology-based therapies can assist a child that has symptoms of dyspraxia. Strategies can be implemented to help the child and family overcome these barriers to success. Dyspraxia has no impact on a child’s intelligence or intellectual ability.
Dyspraxia can go unnoticed and un-diagnosed in a child that is simply ‘clumsy’ or ‘uncoordinated’ or ‘not academic’. But this is not the case, and overlooking Dyspraxia will not help it to resolve itself. Intervention from a registered occupational therapist and/or psychologist or counselor can assist in the process of helping your child overcome Dyspraxia and be the best they can be.
Look over the infographic below to see if your child may have signs of dyspraxia. If you have any concerns, please call 0409 279 728 or email
