About the Author

Maureen Boon recently retired as Headteacher of Vranch House, an independent school for children with physical disabilities in Exeter which provides therapeutic interventions for children with movement and associated disorders such as cerebral palsy and dyspraxia. She has worked with children with movement disorders for over thirty years, and previously taught in primary schools.


The author clearly demonstrates her experience and empathy with the many issues which parents and teachers may encounter with people with dyspraxic difficulties... The book (...) provides clear examples, illustrated with photographs of interventions, strategies for movement and day to day living. Additionally, the appendices also provide useful starting points for those less familiar with basic hard copy and online resources. -- Patoss Bulletin
`The jargon-free language made the book very concise and easy to read and the clearly defined chapters make it easy to find particular information...The descriptive case studies throughout were a particular highlight to both myself and the parents.` -- Speech & Language Therapy in Practice, Lynsey McDowell, community paediatric therapist, Newry, Northern Ireland
`Understanding Dyspraxia is an invaluable guide for teachers and parents, offering in-depth analysis and advice on how to best meet the needs of these unique children.` -- ForeWord Reviews
