Dyspraxia in Adulthood Workshop for 2023

To book your place see our website here Dyspraxia in Adulthood Saturday - 4th March 2023 - Dyspraxia Foundation

A delegate at our 2019 adult conference wrote “"I just wanted to thank you and the Dyspraxia team for such an informative and enjoyable conference. I've today had to support my daughter with anxiety meltdown as she travelled by train to visit family, but because of the excellent information / presentations at last Saturday's event I felt so much more able to help her - we talked about the energy spoons for instance. Being at the conference has already had a major impact on the way my husband and I can support our daughter - so huge thank you to everyone involved. (also I've worked/volunteered in the charity sector for over 25 years and that was the best conference / event I've ever attended!)"
