Dyspraxia support

My eight year old son has recently had a formal severe dyspraxia diagnosis. I have been trying to find support in Kent / South London for him and me but can not find anything. All google ever shows is the dyspraxia foundation which has nothing locally at all. Can anyone help??

Hi there. I'm south east London, nr Beckenham. My daughter 8 has dyspraxia too. I searched for local support groups but sadly found none. Not much help I know but wanted to say you are not alone and mumsnet can be a good substitute.

Hi everyone, me and my 9 year old dd have dyspraxia. Facebook and mumsnet r good places to find support groups and hopefully someone local to you. My dd's school nurse put me in contact with another mum nearby who had a dyspraxic son.

Hi everyone,
Incredibly new to this.
My 5 year old son has recently been diagnosed with dyspraxia and sensory processing disorder and I'm struggling to find any support groups of sessions and I'm finding this very difficult to cope with, if anyone know of anywhere in the Worthing west Sussex area, please let me know xxx
