What is dyspraxia?

Developmental dyspraxia affects the way that the brain processes information, which results in messages not being properly or fully transmitted. It is associated with problems of perception, language and thought. Dyspraxia sometimes runs in families and may overlap with other learning differences or related conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder.
