We offer a number of Dyspraxia Workshops at the London Centre. Dyspraxia is a specific learning difficulty, defined as an impairment or immaturity of the organisation of movement. It has become an umbrella term for disorders in which one or several areas of development are affected. Specific areas of difficulty will depend on the individual, though they may include problems with motor skills, hesitant or awkward movements, lack of confidence, concentration difficulties, language difficulties, lack of strength and stamina, perceptual problems and difficulty with social relationships. Conductive Education has proven very effective in helping children with dyspraxia develop their physical abilities, confidence, motivation, social skills and self esteem.
The programme can include sessions and activities designed to improve children’s balance, co-ordination, perception, physical awareness, handwriting and social skills.
As part of the expansion of our Pre-School and Outreach programme, The London Centre will be running regular Dyspraxia block holiday sessions and a Saturday group. Places are limited and all new participants need to undergo an assessment prior to placement.
Please see our 2012 Block Holiday Programme for details of other Dyspraxia Workshops, also information on cerebral palsy and hemiplegia sessions planned throughout the year.
