A practical online guide for parents and teachers
Your child has been diagnosed with a movement disorder (low muscle tone, DCD/dyspraxia, joint hypermobility) and you are looking for help with understanding your child's difficulties and wanting to know what you can do to help your child.
These are tricky questions. Taking time to read these articles will provide some answers and suggestions for the way forward.
Testimonial: I just wanted to say your website is one of the most helpful I've ever come across. Despite having worked with about every specialist on the planet, you're the first person I feel like truly "gets" my child and her challenges- despite your never having met her. Seriously. Thank you so much. I wish we lived closer so that you could work with my daughter, but the next best thing is your awesome resources. Please keep them coming- they are life changing!
