The Dyspraxia Foundation

The Dyspraxia Foundation is a countrywide charity, founded in 1987 as the Dyspraxia Trust by two mothers who met at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. After being told that their children had Dyspraxia they were astonished and dismayed to discover that no facilities existed to help or inform parents and children with the condition. They decided to form their own group to help others to help themselves.

From the very beginning they encouraged others to join the group and then to set up their own local sub-groups to support other parents and sufferers of Dyspraxia in their own local area, but in the name of the Trust. In 1996 the charity changed its name to the Dyspraxia Foundation and this is what it is known as today.

The object of the Foundation is: 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 and to promote awareness and understanding of dyspraxia.
