I got my assesment for dyspraxia this thursday, but I was wondering as I am not offically classed as dyspraxic/disabled do I still have the right to use the disability discrimination act where I work?

doggy grounds, explain. This law covers making reasonable changes to say an office/shop to allow access for wheelchair users, things like that.

Dyspraxia is fully covered by the Disability Discrimination Act, but you do need to be officially diagnosed in order to qualify for support or additional assistance. The Act specifies that all reasonable adjustments must be made to accommodate disabled workers. These adjustments can include the provision of specialist technology, extra training, flexible working hours, and many other things, depending on what your difficulties actually are.

everything is linked to the word 'reasonable' and how everyone determines it.

What is it you are looking for from your employer, more time to complete tasks, more understanding? More explanations on how to complete a task?
