- Kids with dyspraxia find everyday tasks like holding a pencil or catching a ball hard to do.
- During a dyspraxia assessment, your child will perform a range of physical actions.
- The evaluator will measure your child’s motor skills, balance and coordination.
If your child has trouble with movement and coordination, you might wonder if he has dyspraxia. This brain-based condition makes it hard for kids to do things like hold a pencil or catch a ball. It’s often diagnosed as “developmental coordination disorder.”
