I have to admit, I didn't really know what DCD was, so clicked on here to see if you had expanded. I had assumed it was s developmental disorder of some kind, but there are probably others like me, so until we get to know you and what DCD means, it might be better to use the full wording for a bit.

How does it differ from Dypsraxia?

Hi my son has Dcd, as far as I know it's much the same as dyspraxia but is used to cover kids who have all or most dyspraxic symptoms and other related symptoms

Developmental Co-ordination Disorder is an umbrella term which is used to describe co-ordination difficulties and is used interchangeably with Dyspraxia. My dd 11 has DCD and Nonverbal Learning Disorder.
