Dyspraxia is a “hidden” difficulty that can prove quite disabling to the child in a learning or social environment. Having ideas about what to do and sequencing how to do it as well as completing tasks in the same timing as a peer, can be quite elusive to some kids. This workshop will cover different kinds of Dyspraxias, as well as assessment and intervention ideas that will support learning abilities in the social and academic environment as well as sports and physical education.
Participants will learn how ADHD and Dyslexia can overlap with Dyspraxia. They will understand the different sensory aspects of Somatodyspraxia and the importance of timing in Bilateral Integration and Sequencing Dyspraxia. Finally, they will learn how to address these areas of dyspraxia and help the children on their caseload.
