Chat with others about dyspraxia and share your experiences.


Postby Kieran » Tue Jul 27, 2010 4:28 pm

Firstly I want to congratulate you all on what is such a fantastic website. One of the few of its kind I could find anywhere on the internet. I have been reading posts on here for a while.

Well this is my first post so may as well use this chance to introduce myself.

My name is Kieran and I am a student living in South London. I am 19 and have both Dyspraxia and Dyslexia. I was diagnosed with Dyspraxia at an early age and much of my life could be described as a battle. I have endured bullying, depression and fustration as a result of my difficulties. More often than not however I won these battles and feel my experiences could help many of my fellow Dyspraxics. I have passed my GCSEs, A Levels and gained a Higher Certificate of Education at Kingston University. I chose to leave Kingston after one year and I am transfering to Winchester to start a degree in Politics and Global studies. In my spare time I play the Clarinet and Guitar and am currently learning to drive an automatic car (lack the coordination for a manual). I am a passionate Newcastle United fan and also I enjoy books, films, sport, politics and playing Rugby.

Well thats it pretty much! I look forward to talking to you all!

Hey, welcome Kieren :)

I love music, and i'm currently learning guitar myself (still very beginner though, switching between chords is hard :lol: ). Im also interested in military planes, and making models of them, along with other models (warhammer 40k etc). I've just finished my GCSE's, and now enjoying my holidays until i start college :P

Hiya! I'm Steph and I'm 23. I have both dyspraxia and Aspergers Syndrome. I live in Surrey in south east England and I work as a support worker in a residential school for children with severe and complex epilepsy and other neurological and physical disabilities. It is very challenging but I enjoy it and I am getting better at it now! I love animals (I have 3 cats at home), the Internet, learning about other cultures and languages, reading and listening to music. I hope you enjoy the boards :D

Hello Kieran, welcome to DT. I'm Remus, I'm 18 and I'm mild dyspraxic (although it's unofficial, trying to get it sorted out). I live in Birmingham, West Midlands where I am currently training to be a zookeeper. I have four cats and two fish and love all sorts of animals especially big cats as I hope to work with them someday. I love books, movies, music, television especially TV series.

Hope you enjoy the boards!
