If your child has Dyspraxia DCD or is waiting on a diagnosis, this meeting will have helpful information:

The next meeting of the Donegal Dyspraxia Support Group is taking place on Wednesday 26th September.

The event will hear from three guests speakers giving advice for parents and educators on the Developmental Coordination Disorder.

This meeting will particularly suit parents who are waiting on a diagnosis for their children.

Guest speakers include:

  • An occupational therapist from the HSE
  • Deirdre Ward, Play Therapist from UNLOCK, based in Donegal Town

Dyspraxia/DCD is a disorder affecting motor coordination in children and adults. The common disorder varies in every person and can affect everyday life skills in education, work and employment.

There is no known cure for Dyspraxia/DCD, but occupational therapists, physiotherapists, and extra help at school can all assist children with coping or overcoming many of the difficulties they face.

The next local support group will meet on Wednesday 26th of September in the Letterkenny Community Centre from 7pm-9pm.

Everyone is most welcome to attend – including parents, teachers, SNAs, educators.

Tea and coffee is provided, with a €5 donation appreciated.
