Daughter 14 with dyspraxia
Sorry in advance if this gets long not sure where to go or what to do and cannot find any support groups. My daughter has dyspraxia and was diagnosed when she was round the age of 4. She is at high school and is in remedial classes. I tried for many years from primary up to high school to get her statemented but couldn't. I have read up in the diagnosis of dyspraxia and my daughter is all of the issues stated. Socially, loneliness. Nobody family and friends seem to understand why she is like she is and I feel frustrated at them as they seem to think she's just not as quick as other kids but I know myself that she is different from her peers at school and she gets horrible name calling and she asks why do they call me horrible names as well as why is she in classes for naughty kids when I'm not naughty. I'm not sure where to go with this as I'm stressing what will happen to her when she is older as she struggles socially and cannot really do basic maths eg, counting money.
Apologies this long but just need to talk to someone who has a child the same and I can then feel I can tell family and friends I'm not overprotective she has a condition.
