Dyspraxia

DyspraxiaWhat is praxis?

It’s a uniquely human skill stemming from the brain. Praxis includes knowing what to do as well as how to do it. It’s needed for things like getting dressed, learning to write or learning to ride a bicycle.

Praxis is a three part process:

  • Ideation – knowing what to do
  • Motor planning – directing and organising the movement
  • Execution – carrying out the motor plan

Because Praxis happens automatically (on a sub-conscious level), you may not know whether your child is having difficulties (Dyspraxia). Watch out for a cluster of the following:

  • Clumsiness (such as constantly bumping into things or falling over)
  • Being a messy eater, favouring fingers
  • Trouble co-ordinating both hands together, doing up buttons, etc
  • Poor concentration
  • Limited imaginative play
  • Preferring company of adults
  • Unable to write stories
  • Unable to take the lead in play

COVID-19 Update

During these uncertain times, we are keen to keep you up-to-date with our service provision, which as you can appreciate is changing daily.

For reassurance CTS have set up a ‘Best Practice’ policy to ensure all our Occupational Therapists and Office Staff are working to the highest standard at all times; where ever we are based in the UK.

We are currently NOT seeing families at our designated CTS Clinics conforming to the recent request 23rd March 2020 @ 2030hrs from our government and NHS.

CTS are wanting to reassure you that we are highly committed to you and your child’s OT needs are cared for. We appreciate a lot of our families and service users are vulnerable and many have EHCP’s in place. As a service this requires us to ensure we continue to safeguard and meet the welfare needs of our service users effectively.

We are now providing alternative therapy to continue to support children, families and in some cases parents. We are using your appointment times and making contact via phone calls, conference calls, emails, Zoom and or Skype to support Telehealth Interventions.

Letters are being sent out to all our service users to reassure our commitment.

Please be reassured that all staff are taking every precaution to support our country in preventing the spread of this virus.

Please continue to check this site and our Facebook page for the latest updates. Alternatively call us on: 01664 567917.
