Thanks for the link Wartorious. I had a little physiotherapy and occupational therapy when I was younger.

You're very lucky, Ruby. I have just started doing kitchen work with an occupational therapist in readiness for university, and that really seems to be helping - I love gadgets. :D

It is a pity that it so difficult to obtain physiotherapy. The waiting lists are enormous. Thankfully, Madeleine Portwood has put some useful exercises in the back of her book Developmental Dyspraxia: Identification and Intervention. Homegrown physio is better than nothing.
