DCD-Dyspraxia Updated Guidance Issued
This updated guidance on DCD-Dyspraxia will be helpful to all practitioners.

adults. In 2018 Professors Kirby, Barnett and Hill produced the first version of a Diagnostic Interview for DCD in Adults (DIDA, 2018). Building on this work SASC is issuing this updated guidance     March 2020

A1.1 Labels and terminology: key issues  
A2. DCD / dyspraxia in children (5-15yrs)
A3. DCD / dyspraxia in adults (16+ years)
A3.1. Establishing sufficient evidence to identify DCD / dyspraxia (adults)
A4. Intervention, recommendations and reasonable adjustments
A5. Who can assess for DCD / dyspraxia?  
A6. References
