Odds are you know someone with Dyspraxia.

Dyspraxia is a neurological disorder throughout the brain that results in life-long impaired motor, memory, judgment, processing, and other cognitive skills. Dyspraxia also impacts the immune and central nervous systems. Each dyspraxic person has different abilities and weaknesses as dyspraxia often comes with a variety of comorbidities. The most common of these is Developmental Coordiantion Disorder (also known as DCD), a motor-planning-based disorder that impacts fine and gross motor development. For insurance reasons, the World Health Organization code for DCD and dyspraxia together is F82 and the DSM code for DCD alone is 315.4.

As far as advice to others, especially to parents raising a child with dyspraxia, she says, "Don't give up. Keep fighting for your child and get help. If a doctor or teacher isn't helpful or listening to you, try and find another doctor/teacher who will listen."
