Hello Matt,

You might know this already (perhaps the author contacted you) but your web address is included in a book called My Friend Has Dyspraxia, which aims to explain dyspraxia to the friends of younger children who've got learning difficulties. I found this review online:

Mark is Jamie's friend, and he seems to understand Jamie's dyspraxia very well. He helps him remember things like homework at school, and they enjoy drama club together. Jamie's story is one of difficulties with writing, with maths, with physical activity, and with remembering things, and until he is diagnosed, with teasing and bullying too. Crucially, Jamie's diagnosis comes with the assurance that he is clever, and this helps his self-esteem hugely. We meet several therapists who help Jamie, and there is a clear explanation of what is known about dyspraxia. Fact boxes add to the information, and there is an index, a glossary, and a list of organisations and websites - interestingly, one of these is a personal site by a teenager with dyspraxia: www.matts-hideout.co.uk. An excellent and reassuring production.
