How to improve organisational skills for children & young people with Dyspraxia/DCD
This webinar will provide parents with an insight into how DCD/Dyspraxia affects organisational skills (executive functioning) and the impact on their child. I will share the top tips and strategies on supporting the development of organisational skills necessary for everyday activities. Research shows that children who can self-manage everyday activities have greater confidence, self-efficacy and self-esteem.
During this webinar, attendees will have lots of opportunities to ask questions and share solutions in this small group webinar.
Developmental Coordination Disorder, commonly known as Dyspraxia, is a motor disorder that affects 1 in 20 children. DCD affects the child’s development of motor coordination skills. In turn, poor motor coordination affects the child’s ability to learn and perform everyday activities. Mastering activities such as dressing, cycling, using cutlery, handwriting, gross motor skills necessary for playing, and organisational skills are challenging for the child with DCD.
Difficulties with motor coordination can affect the child’s emotional well-being if they are not addressed. Research shows that parental understanding of DCD reduces parental frustration, enhances the child’s self-esteem, and increases the child’s ability to participate in family and community-based activities.
