The aim of the conference is that you leave with increased knowledge and understanding that will empower those people impacted by Developmental Dyspraxia/DCD in a positive and meaningful way.

Each person, regardless of age, with Developmental Dyspraxia/DCD is truly unique – one size definitely doesn’t fit all.  We hope that from attending this conference you will develop an understanding of how people impacted by Developmental Dyspraxia/DCD transition positively through life.

We hope that delegates will leave with an enhanced understanding of the strengths and challenges people with Developmental Dyspraxia/DCD may experience.
