Dyspraxia Foundation

The Dyspraxia Foundation is dedicated to increasing understanding of dyspraxia. We need to make sure that every child with dyspraxia has their special educational and social needs identified as early as possible. Only then can remedial action be taken to reduce the effects of this condition on the child and on their entire family.

The Foundation is financed entirely through donations and through our member's subscriptions. The more support we have, the more we are able to support the tens of thousands of people who have the condition.

The objectives of the Foundation are:

  • To support individuals and families affected by dyspraxia.
  • To promote better diagnostic and treatment facilities for those who have dyspraxia.
  • To help professionals in health and education to assist those with Dyspraxia.
  • To promote awareness and understanding of dyspraxia.

Each year the Foundation answers approximately 10,000 enquiries and distributes more then 20,000 leaflets about the condition. The Foundation seeks every opportunity to increase understanding of dyspraxia, particularly among professionals in health and education.

The Foundation is run by fewer than six full-time equivalent paid staff and is supported extensively by volunteers. Its work is funded entirely by voluntary donation and membership subscriptions.

What else do we do?

  • Publish leaflets, booklets, books and guides for parents, those who have dyspraxia and professionals.
  • Organises conferences and talks about dyspraxia and related topics for parents, carers and professionals.
  • Supports a network of local groups across the United Kingdom.
  • Supports a group for adults who have dyspraxia.
