He mentioned it in the interview on television tonight saying that it affected his coordination and that is meant he had to take longer to process information.

Just thought it was nice to see someone state it so easily and without any embarrassment or issues. He was very matter of fact, I thought. I know he stated it was mild, but still good to see it mentioned so easily.

I agree totally it was great that someone so inspirational in the eyes of many young people took that step.
My son is also dyspraxic he also is very matter of fact.
When we are having family time and are a bit disorganised he will often say I thought was the dyspraxic one!
Maybe Daniel's mention of it will encourage more people to be open about it.

ds' ears pricked up when he heard that although I thoguht I'd told him before. Might just give him another comeback to those who tease .

ds2 has mild dyspraxia and is a huge Harry Potter fan - will tell him after school. He is also very matter of fact - how interesting!

He has mentioned it before a couple of years back. I think it is great that he mentions it. It gives hope to those like Wilf and I to know that people who have done as well as he has have dyspraxia. Perhaps he could now publicise how difficult it is to get it on children's SEN's!!

Yes that would be good. The documentary about the actress with dyslexia the other week was very good I thought - really showed the difficultues she faced in everyday life.
