This may sound a little crazy, but i think that the speech therapist got it wrong. Everything that i have read on Dyspraxia suggest that my daughter doesn't have it and if she does there is an underlying suggestion that there is more if not less wrong with her than what they are saying. She has never been clumsy, she can tell her left from her right. She has an excellent memory you only have to show her once eg she watched me put my pin number in the atm and can tell you it off by heart, can remember docs appts which is why i tell her or i forget. She is obsessed with musicals her fav is grease which she insist on writing numbers 3 n 4 in short story version. In all fairness though she has trouble planning and organising and has trouble with cutlery and scissors. She is still dribbling and has no social skills and hates noises that are not 2 her liking they give her a "headache". She tells everyone how many sisters and brothers she has how old they are where we live our phone number. Herspeech isn't the best either and has only just started to see a developmental peadiatrician and has had ot and speech, but never physio, but is now on the waiting list for an assesment thanks to doc. She plays netball and can ride a 2 wheel bike. I hpoe all this helps with input. I just dont know if i'm in denial or if i am right. She is 7yrs 10mths,

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
