Up to ten per cent of the population is believed to suffer from some form of Dyspraxia. It is described by the Dyspraxia Foundation as 'an impairment or immaturity of the organisation of movement.' Accessible and engaging, this book provides teachers with tips and techniques for teaching those with dyspraxia. As Geoff Brookes writes, 'There are symptons, there are problems, there are frustrations, there are tears. But there are strategies that can lead to positive outcomes. And whilst it is important to understand where it comes from, providing support and guidance is what this book is all about.' This book will prove invaluable for teachers everywhere.
