Dyspraxia




Known as dysfunctional syndrome, dyspraxia is a neurological motor dysfunction that conditions the ability of the brain to control certain movements.
 
Despite being a disease that has not yet been studied and the diagnosis still lacks certainties, dyspraxia is characterized by the inability to coordinate the action, that is, a person with this pathology can not plan and execute a sequence of acts, whether routine or new ones.
 
Basic day-to-day actions can also be taken as a real challenge for those suffering from this condition.

There are four types of dyspraxia:
 
1. Motor, characterized by difficulties in the corporal scheme and delay in the motor organization; May be associated with slowness, inaccuracy and difficulties in the planning and execution of movements;
2. Spatial, characterized by a disorganization of the corporal scheme and the relation of the child with the space;
3. Postural, characterized by difficulties in posture, which are reflected in movements not rhythmic and without fluency;
4. Verbal, characterized as a disturbance of language development.
 

Dyspraxia
 
Daniel Radcliffe, the 'eternal' Harry Potter, is one of the celebrities who faces the disease, having already revealed how difficult it can be to tighten the laces of one's shoes or tie a tie in the neck when having dyspraxia. Cara Delevingene and singer Florence Welch suffer from this condition, which can be quite disabling.
 
Since the early symptoms of this disease arise in childhood and that the degree of disability can range from almost nil to extremely disabling, parents should pay attention to a set of signs that may also arise or worsen in adulthood.
 
According to the Bustle website, these are the clearest indicators of the disease:
  • Bad balance;
  • Not being able to do two or more physical tasks at the same time (or have a lot of trouble getting it);
  • Poor hand coordination;
  • Talking or eating can be two complex tasks;
  • Difficulty in differentiating the left side of the right side;
  • Inability or difficulty in sitting correctly;
  • Difficulty in organizing or planning tasks (whether mentally or in an agenda);
  • Difficulty in learning a sequence of movements (like a dance);
  • Difficulty staying focused;
  • Difficulty in writing, drawing, painting, cutting with scissors, etc.
