About the Author

Mary Colley was diagnosed with Dyspraxia, as well as ADHD and Dyslexia, in her mid-forties. She helped set up the Dyspraxia Foundation Adult Support Group, and achieved a Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties at the Hornsby Centre. She went on to help form DANDA (Developmental Adult Neuro-Diversity Association) a charity working with adults with dyslexia, dyspraxia, Asperger's Syndrome, AD(H)D and related syndromes. She campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness of Dyspraxia and other specific learning disabilities, via print, radio and national media.

Reviews

The book offers excellent advice throughout numerous areas of difficulty including organisation of both self and home, communication and relationships, leisure activities, study skills and very useful tips on how to cope with the workplace.The clarity with which the information is presented, not only helps those who struggle to cope with Dyspraxia, but also enables those with a wider interest in improving generic provision to understand the day to day issues faced by the adult with DCD/Dyspraxia. The information given is both positive and practical.
