Dyspraxia (also known as DCD) is a lifelong condition affecting fine and/or gross motor coordination in children and adults. Having poor fine motor skills can make a simple task, such as tying shoe laces, particularly difficult for somebody with DCD.
Dyspraxia Action! was set up to help people experiencing financial hardship to access occupational therapy services and if needed, a diagnosis for dyspraxia.
Dyspraxia Awareness Week runs between 11th-17th October 2015.
During this time, Dyspraxia Action! are encouraging people to support them in their social media campaign #laceupfordcd by grabbing some colourful laces and lacing their shoes with them to raise awareness about the condition, as well as creating a bit of fun around rehearsing the fine motor skill. Elasticated laces with a clip fastening are a good option if traditional laces are too fiddly.
