Dyspraxia is an impairment or immaturity of the organisation of movement. Associated with this there may be problems of language, perception and thought.

Symptoms are evident from an early age. Youngsters are generally irritable from birth and may exhibit significant feeding problems. They are slow to achieve expected developmental milestones, often not sitting independently by the age of eight months. Many fail to go through the crawling stages as babies, preferring to ‘bottom shuffle’ and then walk.
