Can you imagine what life would be like if you struggled to perform everyday tasks? For many people, this is their reality; things like fastening a button, tying shoelaces, holding a pencil, and even sitting up straight can be an immense challenge for them due to a condition called dyspraxia.
Also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), dyspraxia affects more kids (i.e. five to six percent of school-aged children) than other common disorders like autism and ADHD. However, it often appears alongside these neurological differences, too. And in spite of its relative commonality, it oftentimes goes undiagnosed.
