The Dyspraxia Foundation is a country wide charity, founded in 1987 as the Dyspraxia Trust by two mothers who met at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. After being told that their children had Dyspraxia they were astonished and dismayed to discover that no facilities existed to help or inform parents and children with the condition. They decided to form their own group to help others to help themselves.
Developmental dyspraxia is an impairment or immaturity of the organisation of movement. The Dyspraxia Foundation operates an information helpline and their website has useful material to download plus details of frequently asked questions for practitioners.
