I think its great that a high profile person has spoken out about having dyspraxia. Its also good for children to see that Daniel has done so well despite having dyspraxia.

Shown this article to my DS1 who is fed up with being told that he shouldn't worry because Tom Cruise and lots of other famous people have dyslexia. He's glad he can now say "well Daniel Radcliffe has dyspraxia and look where he is now"

Wow.

That is surprising.

Charley Boorman from the 'Long Way Round' series has such bad dyslexia he is functionally illiterate.

DD1 has severe dyspraxia and it affects so many of her motor skills and learning.
