    DescriptionFor people with Developmental Dyspraxia, everyday life can pose a multitude of problems. Tasks the majority of people would find simple can often be taxing and frought with difficulty. "Living with Dyspraxia" was written to help all adults with Dyspraxia tackle the everyday situations that many people take for granted. It is full of practical advice on everything from getting a diagnosis to learning how to manage household chores. Important topics are addressed, such as self-esteem, whether to disclose your condition within the workplace, how to communicate more effectively and also how Dyspraxia often interacts with other conditions, such as Dyslexia, ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome. This practical resource will be of use to adults with Dyspraxia, the professionals and families members who come into contact with them as well as those who simply wish to learn more about Dyspraxia.

    Mary Colley was diagnosed with Dyspraxia, as well as ADHD and Dyslexia, in her midforties. Since that point, she has helped set up the Dyspraxia Foundation Adult Support Group, and achieved a Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties at the Hornsby Centre. She went on to help form DANDA (Developmental Adult Neuro-Diversity Association) a charity working with adults with dyslexia, dyspraxia, Asperger's Syndrome, AD(H)D and related syndromes. She has campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness of Dyspraxia and other specific learning disabilities, via print, radio and national media. This book was previously published in 2000, and sold over 2500 copies.
