Odds are you know someone with Dyspraxia.
Dyspraxia is a neurological disorder throughout the brain that results in life-long impaired motor, memory, judgment, processing, and other cognitive skills. Dyspraxia also impacts the immune and central nervous systems. Each dyspraxic person has different abilities and weaknesses as dyspraxia often comes with a variety of comorbidities. The most common of these is Developmental Co-ordiantion Disorder (also known as DCD), a motor-planning-based disorder that impacts fine and gross motor development. For insurance reasons, the World Health Organization code for DCD and dyspraxia together is F82 and the DSM code for DCD alone is 315.4.
