About Dyspraxia Wisconsin and Dyspraxia USA
The purpose of Dyspraxia Wisconsin and Dyspraxia USA is to promote understanding, acceptance and education about the neurological disorder. Dyspraxia Wisconsin is a volunteer group that operates under the umbrella of the fast growing Dyspraxia USA Foundation based in Chicago IL. Similar groups under the same organization are rapidly forming across the United States.
Dyspraxia is a little known but widely pervasive neurological condition that causes problems with gross and fine motor skills, coordination, memory, judgment and executive function. This disorder affects 1 out of 10 people. Many children and adults are undiagnosed. Children who have dyspraxia do not meet developmental milestones on time. Dyspraxia is known as a hidden disorder. It is not obvious just by looking at someone when they in fact have special needs. Dyspraxia may be co-morbid with many other conditions.
