Elizabeth Believes in Herself: The Special Journey Continues by Michele Gianetti, R.N.

“Due to immaturity and lack of experience, when compared to peers with natural development, the young adult with dyspraxia is truly trying to catch up. Therefore, at this point, it is vital to start working on the positives of these young adults because with understanding, support and acceptance the young adult with dyspraxia can achieve.”
