Can I tell you about Dyspraxia?: A guide for friends, family and professionals
Meet Marco - a boy with dyspraxia. Marco invites readers to learn about dyspraxia from his perspective, helping them to
understand what it is and what it feels like when he sometimes struggles to control his movement and co-ordination. He talks about the challenges of having dyspraxia and lets readers know how he can be helped and supported. This illustrated book will be an ideal introduction for young people, aged 7 upwards, as well as parents, friends, teachers and professionals working with children with dyspraxia. It is also an excellent starting point for family and classroom discussions.
