This one-day course is a “must have” for every professional that works in the pediatric world. Pulling from 34 years of work experience, Maude Le Roux explains this ability / disability in clear and practical terms. She defines it, pulls it apart in different components, allowing the participant to fully grasp this developmental delay that haunts so many children in motor delay as well as in learning. Dyspraxia is frequently called “the hidden disorder” in other wise bright and intelligent children. The content will include discussion of the influence of dyspraxia on social-emotional development, academic learning, social pragmatic speech and language, as well as on cognitive and abstract problem solving. The participant will leave with tools of assessment to investigate as well as practical hands-on intervention techniques that could be applied immediately in their work.
