As we all know, awareness and support of Dyspraxia/DCD across the medical, education and government sectors within Australia is limited. This needs to change and to do this, we need your help.
We are delighted to be launching a national survey to collect the vital evidence needed to demonstrate the impact of persistent movement-related difficulties. The survey covers several key areas, including diagnosis; activity and participation; schooling; therapy and intervention; social, emotional and financial impacts; along with what you would like to see change.
If you have a child or children aged 5-18 years with Dyspraxia/DCD, we would love you to participate in the survey.
Together we can do this! It is time for our voices to be heard. It is time for change.

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
