The Dyspraxia Foundation is the only national charity in the UK dedicated to raising awareness and providing support and advice to those with Dyspraxia/DCD, their families and those with an interest in the condition from across the country. We work tirelessly to enable children, young people and adults with dyspraxia/DCD to reach their full potential in life through responding to queries, holding conferences, and publishing literature. The Dyspraxia Foundation’s vision is a world in which dyspraxia/DCD is understood and accepted and where dyspraxia/DCD is not a barrier to opportunity and fulfilment.
Our objectives 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 we answer approximately 10,000 enquiries and distribute more than 20,000 leaflets about the condition. We seek every opportunity to increase understanding of dyspraxia, particularly among professionals in health and education.
We’re is run by fewer than six full-time equivalent paid staff and are supported extensively by volunteers. Our work is funded entirely by voluntary donation and membership subscriptions. To find out more or to become a member, please visit www.dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk
