What is Dyspraxia?

Dyspraxia affects development of skills in movement and coordination.


If your child

- is intelligent,

-can see and hear well

- often drops things or walks against other people or objects,

- and is less able to coordinate the movements of his or her hands and legs than other children of the same age,

then he or she may have Dyspraxia.



Signs of Dyspraxia:

- the child has had the difficulties in coordinating their movements from an early age; he or she was slow to learn to run, to skip or climb staircases

- the child may have difficulties in pronouncing words when speaking

- the child finds it difficult to tie shoe laces or to fasten / unfasten buttons, while other children of the same age are able to do so

- when eating, the child tends to scatter the food

- the child has difficulty catching a ball

- the child often stumbles, falls or walks against obstacles like door posts

- the child has poor handwriting and drawing skills

- the child is not good at jigsaw puzzles, Lego, riding a bicycle, ball games




There are currently no diagnostic Dyspraxia tests that are valid for Ghana.
