This evening I wanted to discuss a rarely discussed topic: dyspraxia or Developmental Coordination Disorder. Here are some interesting facts:
- Daniel Radcliffe (Actor)
- Cara Delevingne (Model, Actress and Singer)
- Florence Welch (Singer)
- David Bailey (Photographer)
The above famous people have dyspraxia, as do I. I wasn’t diagnosed until studying towards my MA.
I want to share this because the d word doesn’t need to hold us back. It means we are different and can think differently. I describe myself as ‘out of the box’. There is a lot of hope in having any condition that makes us different, because it makes us special and unique. This is to be celebrated.
Today’s second hope recipe is to always celebrate those who do things differently X
