Dyslexia can affect anyone of any age. It is estimated that 10% of people over 16 in the UK alone have dyslexia to some degree. It is our aim to remove the barriers facing those with dyslexia by providing help and support to those with dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties.
The Foundation seeks every opportunity to increase understanding of Dyspraxia, particularly among professionals in health and education and encourages its local groups to do the same. It continues to encourage the smaller local groups to thrive and develop their own ideas and to distribute information and fund raise for themselves. Our helpline is available to help you with problems and issues you may encounter; offering help and advice to people with dyspraxia, parents, carers, and families about or on the subject of dyspraxia.
The idea behind the website was to provide a community forum where adults could seek information and advice on Dyspraxia in Adults. The forum has been steadily growing since and today provides the largest resource of information for adults with dyspraxia.
Movement Matters is the UK umbrella organisation representing the major national groups concerned with children and adults with coordination difficulties, a condition called Developmental Coordination Disorder (or DCD) and sometimes referred to as ‘dyspraxia’.
