Dyspraxia is believed to affect up to 10% of the population, and involves difficulties with physical co-ordination. Children with dyspraxia may find it hard to learn to write, tie shoelaces or join in P.E. lessons. Adults with dyspraxia may find everyday tasks problematic, such as using a tin-opener, having a bath, playing sport or, in some cases, even speaking clearly. This updated edition of Coping with Dyspraxia explains how this condition may affect people, and how to cope with it, at any stage of life.

You re So Clumsy Charley

Charley always seemed to get into trouble, though he didn't mean to. He was getting fed up of going to school because he felt different from most of the other kids. Then he met his Aunty Bella. And everything changed. This illustrated children's story explains what it feels like to be a child who is different from other children. Charley seems to keep getting into trouble all the time for doing things wrong. While not labelled in the story, Charley has a specific learning difficulty. In particular, he shows dyspraxic (a.k.a. Developmental Coordination Disorder) tendencies such as clumsiness. It is Charley's specific learning difficulty that makes him feel different and therefore unhappy at school, because he doesn't understand it. Thankfully, when Charley learns he is not alone, things begin to get better for him. This book can be used with young children to discuss how neurodiversity (e.g. dyspraxia, dyslexia, ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome) is not a bad thing and that in fact it can have its strengths. This illustrated book helps parents, teachers, and other adults who support children, have a non-threatening discussion about specific learning difficulties with children of primary school age. Children find it easier to relate to, and discuss, the character in the story rather than have all the attention focused on them. Using the book as a catalyst for discussion, adults can use the illustrated story at home or in school with children who have a specific learning difficulty, or exhibit tendencies of one. Teachers can use the book to help classmates better understand their peers who may struggle with some things others don't (e.g. as illustrated by Charley's clumsiness in this story). Similarly, parents can use the book to help children better understand family members. You're So Clumsy Charley was originally published under the Funky Gerbil imprint in 2013. This Second Edition has had a change of typeface, along with the inclusion of some additional information for teachers/adults. This revised edition has been moved over to the Your Stories Matter imprint (under the same publisher). Charley was written by someone who is herself dyspraxic, and is based on both her own and her daughter's experiences of being misunderstood. She wanted to help those children who continue to remain misunderstood. As with all of its books, the publisher aims to help people know they are not alone with what makes them different. If a young person or adult can relate to a story, it gives them hope and encourages them to share their concerns. The publisher aims to provide free teaching resources for all of its books that can be used in schools, to help improve understanding and celebrate differences.

Emily’s sister is different from other children she knows. She seems to struggle with things most of us just do naturally. In this delightfully illustrated story, based upon real family experiences, Emily discovers how to understand and help her sister live a happier life. This story, written by the parent of a child with Dyspraxia and Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), paves the way for parents, teachers and medical professionals to discuss these specific learning difficulties with children (aged around 7-9). Unlike most other books on the subject, this book has been written from a child's perspective: enabling young people to ask questions of the story in a non-threatening way and encouraging them to discover how it relates to them. This book can be shared with children having special needs, their family, or their classmates. As with all of its books, the publisher - Your Stories Matter – aims to help people know they are not alone with what makes them different. If a young person or adult can relate to a story, it gives them hope and encourages them to share their concerns. The publisher aims to provide free teaching resources for all of its books that can be used in schools, to help improve understanding and celebrate differences.

This text shows professionals who are working in early years settings how to understand the specific difficulties a child with dyspraxia may encounter. It encourages them to consider the wider implications of the disorder for both home and school environments. The author demonstrates clearly and practically: how existing classroom conditions and routines can be adapted to encompass the needs of the child with dyspraxia or motor difficulties; the checklists and oservation schedules which can be used to give a fuller picture of the problems facing such a child; how to breakdown the basic movement patterns into different competency levels so that progress can be made via appropriate teaching points; and how analysing the movement patterns of a child can reveal their cognitive development.
