I just wanted to know if anyone knew about how many people have dyspraxia worldwide. If you know, please tell me. It would just be an interesting fact to know.

Thanks,
Shanna ;) :lol:

I would have thought that in most Countries it would exist but it wouldn't be very well recognised.

It exists everywhere. It just isn't recognised properly. Close your eyes, and the world around you is still there - it just isn't visible.

The Dyspraxia Foundation estimates that the global figure is 10%, including those who are only mildly affected. 2-4% of people are severely dyspraxic.

So approximately, 1 in 10 people have traits of dyspraxia. Wow, that's a lot more than I thought!

It exsists, but is probably not recognised, even in the US when my son was first tested for school they just wanted to mark him as clumsy or lazy or retarded.

My Son has Dyslexia as well as dyspraxia, and at one time I was told he was borderline aspergers(he has several aspergers tendancies)

So I'd say Yea most of these things are closely linked.

It is called a nonverbal learning disability a lot here. It is not called dyspraxia as often it seems because then there would be more people who knew of the disorder. <_<
