If you're dyspraxic, you might struggle with things like balance, being messy or breaking things, or even spatial awareness. But dyspraxic kids also have lots of talents and strengths.
In this book you will meet different dyspraxic children who can do amazing things. You might recognise some of these strengths as things that you can do too!
Some dyspraxic children have excellent memories, some are super flexible, some love making their friends laugh, or have brilliant imaginations, some are great at focusing really hard, and some have loads of energy, and bounce off the walls!
Each character also shares things that you can ask grown-ups to do to support you, like giving you exercises to strengthen your body, setting routines at school and home to help with your anxiety, aids to help with handwriting, and allowing fidget toys or doodling to help you focus.
This book also provides guidance for parents and teachers, with advice on how they can support children with suspected or diagnosed dyspraxia at home or in the classroom, and provides further resources and bonus content.

Press Reviews

  • Jonathan Levy, Chair of the Dyspraxia Foundation

    The children in this book are shining examples of the great qualities dyspraxia can bring. Gives practical tips without glossing things over'.
  • Rosemary Richings, author of Stumbling Through Space and Time

    Meet the Dyspraxia Champions is a wholesome spark of hope for dyspraxic children and their families navigating a dyspraxia diagnosis for the first time. As a dyspraxic person, I can confirm that the book strikes the right balance between being truthful about what dyspraxic children often find challenging and recognising that they have so much to offer the world. It is refreshing, heart-warming, and life-affirming to see stories of self-assured dyspraxic children who never apologise for being exactly who they are. Being dyspraxic and navigating dyspraxia can be overwhelming when it's all brand new for you. So, if the experience of living with dyspraxia is brand new to you or someone you love, read this to remind yourself that a world that accepts dyspraxic people for who they are is possible and completely worth fighting for.

    I love this book. It has everything you need to know about the complex world of dyspraxia, written with simplicity and deep understanding. Not only does it highlight the strengths of dyspraxia champions and give child-friendly hints on overcoming challenges, it also investigates the overlap with ADHD, autism and dyslexia. Highly recommended!
