When most people think about dyspraxia, they think about struggles with fine and gross motor skills. But dyspraxia can also affect communication, organization and other life skills.
This checklist can help you get a sense of whether your child might be showing signs of dyspraxia. Keep in mind that many young kids are still developing motor planning skills. And not every child who struggles with motor issues has dyspraxia.
If you’re concerned your child might have dyspraxia, there are steps you can take to find out. One thing you can do is fill out and print this checklist to talk with her doctor or teacher about what you’re seeing.
If you’re not sure whether your child is showing certain signs or not, you may want to revisit this checklist after spending some time observing her motor skills, balance and coordination.
