Uni Hill Conference Centre—Melbourne Australia
Dyspraxia Kids Australia Inc. would like to invite you to attend our National Conference in Melbourne
Initiating Change and Understanding the Challenges
In attending the conference, it is our hope that you will gather information, network with others and leave with an increased knowledge of Dyspraxia/DCD and strategies that can help those living with Dyspraxia/DCD around you.
Over time we will be able to bring you many different facets but for now let’s start at the beginning together and initiate the change. We look forward to receiving your registration and to have you join us at the conference.
Dyspraxia is the common name for Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).
DCD is a neuro-developmental disorder, likely caused by irregularity in the developing brain.
1 in 20 children are affected, but many remain undiagnosed.
Verbal Dyspraxia (CAS)
Childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) appears in early childhood but can continue into adulthood.
Children with CAS have problems saying sounds, syllables and words.
Although a child with CAS knows what they want to say, their brain struggles to correctly move their lips, jaw and tongue in order to speak clearly and be understood.
Building Blocks Therapy is a private Occupational Therapy practice that aims to empower kids to reach their full potential.
Our purpose is to help kids overcome life’s obstacles and challenges by facilitating a fun and safe environment
where kids are fully engaged in the positive activities chosen to create a “just right challenge’,
that enables them to develop the skill and confidence they need to successfully participate in everyday activities
