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.
