Participants of Dyspraxic Me have been planning an event since July for Dyspraxia Awareness Week. Are you able to attend?

Dyspraxia Comes to Westminster

A group of young people with dyspraxia are holding a free awareness raising event.
The event is being run by members of ‘Dyspraxic Me’ in collaboration with Can Do, a Leonard Cheshire programme for young disabled people to volunteer.

The Can Do programme coordinator for London has been supporting the group over the last few months to plan and hold their event. The group are planning a book signing, a panel debate, workshops and a stall with information on dyspraxia, tea and cake, plus a social media corner for people to tweet or live stream their stories about dyspraxia. October 9 – 15 is Dyspraxia Awareness week. The event hopes to dispel some of the myths surrounding dyspraxia!
