Dyspraxia support

(6 Posts)

Hi everyone, me and my 9 year old dd have dyspraxia. Facebook and mumsnet r good places to find support groups and hopefully someone local to you. My dd's school nurse put me in contact with another mum nearby who had a dyspraxic son.

Hi there. I'm south east London, nr Beckenham. My daughter 8 has dyspraxia too. I searched for local support groups but sadly found none. Not much help I know but wanted to say you are not alone and mumsnet can be a good substitute.

My eight year old son has recently had a formal severe dyspraxia diagnosis. I have been trying to find support in Kent / South London for him and me but can not find anything. All google ever shows is the dyspraxia foundation which has nothing locally at all. Can anyone help??
