The Dyspraxia Foundation is a country Wide charity, founded in 1987 by two mothers. Today the Foundation, with its headquarters in Hitchin, answers approximately 10,000 enquiries and distributes more than 20,000 leaflets about the condition, annually. The Foundation seeks every opportunity to increase understanding of Dyspraxia, particularly among professionals in health and education. The Foundation is run by fewer than six full-time equivalent paid staff and is supported extensively by volunteers. Its work is funded entirely by voluntary donation and membership subscriptions.
We are the only National Charity dedicated to Dyspraxia (DCD) .
Dyspraxia is surprisingly common in both children and adults. It is a hidden condition, which is sill poorly understood.
The Dyspraxia Foundation is committed to making the teaching and medical professions more aware of dyspraxia; and to spread understanding of how those who have the condition can be helped.
Our objectives are
To support individuals and families affected by dyspraxia.
To promote better diagnostic and treatment facilities for those who have dyspraxia.
To help professionals in health and education to assist those with Dyspraxia.
To promote awareness and understanding of dyspraxia.
We also publish leaflets, booklets, books and guides for parents, those who have dyspraxia and professionals.
We organise conferences and talks about dyspraxia and related topics for parents, carers and professionals.
