Sorry for long title.

I'm so bloomin confused - why is everything so confusing!
Dd has had sensory sipt assessment - brief report is that she struggles to find her body in space, and mainly trouble with praxis / motor planning. Isn't this dyspraxia?
Also I asked about sensory proses sing and she said they don't diagnose and use this term here? She would not 'label' anything and said something about modulation.
Although it's a draft is is usually this confusing?

Paed said that to us too. Said sensory issues is a large part of Autism, which I understand, but it is diagnosed as a separate condition frequently in the USA isn't it?

Dd has Motor and Processing delays. No formal diagnosis of Dyspraxia and ongoing assessment for ASD

See the attached image! Children can just have dyspraxia, or it can be co morbid with other conditions in any combination - dyslexia, developmental language disorder, ADHD...Not just ASD!

I should have said sensory processing disorder, with regard to the image!
