dyspraxia book recommendations?

Can anyone recommend a useful book on dyspraxia? Ds1 has an autism dx but I strongly feel he is also dyspraxic (affecting gross motor and speech). He is non-verbal but right now he seems to be trying to 'talk' but it looks like he can't make his mouth do what his brain wants it to, despite trying really hard. He struggles with imitation in general, and cannot copy sounds that we make. We are going to be referred to Nuffield next year when he turns three.

I ask because I have found a lot of useful stuff in autism books, but every time I find a dyspraxia book it appears aimed at professionals.

TIA!

Anything by Madeline Portwood.

Also try looking on the Dyspraxia Foundation website they lots of info online which includes some research write ups; you may find something there.
