Are you dyspraxic or know someone who is? Do you want to understand dyspraxia to be able to help others, or are you just curious about what it actually means? Come along to our three-hour session to find out what dyspraxia is, how it affects people and find out how to support people with this learning difficulty.

What are you doing to keep learners safe?

The safety of our learners and staff is our top priority and we’ve made some big changes to our centres, from socially-distanced training rooms to staggered start times. Although things will look different, our staff will be as friendly and helpful as ever and we’re really excited to welcome learners back.

If you’re concerned about visiting one of our centres, please get in touch so we can discuss it with you.

What do I need to join the course?

Just an interest in learning about dyspraxia. This course is an ideal starting point in learning about dyspraxia and no previous knowledge or experience is necessary; if you are currently studying or plan to study topics such as counselling, mental health or working with children, this would be an ideal course to expand your knowledge.

What do I need to bring with me to the first session?

You don’t need to bring anything, but you might want to bring your own notebook and pen.

How will I be taught?

You will be taught by a friendly and knowledgeable tutor and take part in individual and group work and discussions.

What will I learn?

You will learn what dyspraxia is, how it affects people and what different coping strategies might be useful, as well as how to go about getting a diagnosis. The session will also cover what support may be available in education and employment for those with a diagnosis.

What could I do next?

You may want to come to a similar session about dyslexia, Asperger’s or ADHD, or you may wish to progress to a qualification in understanding dyspraxia. We also offer courses on Mental Health, Counselling and Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools, as well as maths, English and Digital Skills. Your tutor will be able to provide more information about these options at the end of the session.

Can we help you to learn?

You can find more information on the Financial help and additional support page or you can contact us to talk about this and any other support we can provide.
