Cheryl leads an interdisciplinary team of researchers who are “Partnering for Change”. This is an innovative model that transforms health service provision for school aged children with Developmental Coordination Disorder. Researchers, clinicians, health professionals, students, educators and parents are all welcome to the upcoming Dublin event.

Tuesday 3rd July 2018: 19:30-21:30 
The purpose of the first talk is to familiarize clinicians, parents and researchers with Partnering for Change which is a population-based approach to management of children with DCD/dyspraxia. We do not emphasise diagnosis but rather encourage support for participation in school, in leisure and community activities.

Wednesday 4th July 2018: 10:00am-12:00noon
There will be an informal conversation/discussion/answering questions .If people coming had questions, thoughts, ways of approaching partnering to change to a more inclusive education system that would be helpful.

Admission: By ticket only – available online at
