hi my little girls has been diagnosed with dypraxia, i always thought there was something not quite right and for three years i was told it was glue ear, she has always been clumsy, but i just thought what child isnt.She's had fab coping skills i.e when she first started school and in her first 2 years, she was so lovely with the teachers that she got away with not doing much at all. but this last year she has had to focus on writting and concentrating more, which has been so much hard work for her, and she always says she needs the toilet at achool, of she is very tired.. she is far too tired to do p.e ( but runs around like anything at home, skips does trampolining at home and netball.. anyway we have just broken up for school holidays and she is going to junior school, where obviously they dont really know her, and she is gonna not have as much support there, basically is there any tips that youcould give me on how to help her with her writing (any pencils,i've just read about tri grips do they help, and is there anyway to help her focus more? her reading is fab,and we do lots of following lines and stuff.. just really want to make this an easier transition for her, dont get me wrong she is taking it all in her stride, but any extra i can help her with would be great, and its such a worrying time for me, coz i want hers to be a positive childhood, one where she has to worry about what she is doing in relation to her friends.. i just think speaking to adults that have been there and done it is better than any book.. thank you for any help
