Children with Dyspraxia can find the school curriculum extremely challenging and stressful, our specialist Dyspraxia tutors are there to help!
Dyspraxia, Dysgraphia and other DCDs: Dyspraxia is a form of a developmental coordination disorder (DCD). It is a common disorder affecting fine and/or gross motor coordination and balance in children and adults.
It may also occasionally affect the speech. Dysgraphia usually refers to disorders affecting the fine motor skills such as those skills required for writing.
Many Students with DCD may present with difficulties with self-care, writing, typing, riding a bike and play as well as other educational and recreational activities. There may also be a range of co-occurring difficulties which can therefore have serious negative impacts on their daily life. These may include social and emotional difficulties as well as problems with their time management, planning and personal organisation.
Dyspraxia can also affect the articulation, memory, speech, perception and thought. For this reason, specialist private Dyspraxia tutors with HB Tutoring must initially assess each student with DCD to gain a better understanding of what the tuition goals and needs are for the student.
As DCD occurs across the range of intellectual abilities, HB Tutoring regularly find that their tutoring method is no different from teaching a student without DCD. However, in many cases our specialist private tutors will need to employ a range of strategies to manage any issues associated with DCD.
