Hi, I'm new so be gentle!! Problem is DS age 8. Poor concentration, horrific handwriting, easily upset and hurt. School has picked up on this and have offered a place in special morning class (he is mortified) Am I paranoid mum or could it be dyspraxia? Excellent bike rider and sports.

Don't have much to help with here but he does sound like my son who has, wait for it, developmental co-ordination delay, which is apparently the same thing. I think they are just trying to confuse us so we don't get anything done!
Not sure I have much wisdom to help as I'm feeling my way through but we were assesed by a paediatrician, through a school referral, and now see an OT.
Can't be much more help but you can also be refered through a GP, his handwriting has definitely improved with balance exercises though, which is random, but there you go.
My boy can also ride a bike well and run, but his ball skills are only comming along now with lots of practice.
