Thank you!!! :)

I forgot to mention. I finally got around to order it on Amazon, it should be coming anyday now. I am really looking forward to reading it from all the good comments everyone makes about it. Vicky, I read on the back of the book that you write it when you were 16 which I didn't know and just though, that's amazing at such a young age! :D

It is amazing! :D I hadn't come to terms with my dyspraxia when I was 15 and I didn't understand it very well.

It came today and when I got it out I wasn't expecting such a big book, I expect it to be small! I love the colourful cover.

I got the book several years ago, and though I'd been diagnosed several years before that, it was my first real introduction to anyone else with DCD/Dyspraxia. Prior to reading, I belived that DCD affected only my coordinalton, that some of the other "weird" things i did were just "weird." This book helped me come to terms with myself. Thanks, Vicky!

Read the book a few weeks ago and Vicky is also the reason I came to this website. my daughter has dyspraxia. Well done Vicky you did an awesome job, I would highly recomend it to anyone that has any contact with any person with dyspraxia, teachers, parents, aunties uncles anyone at all should read it. We live in Malaysia and trying to get a copy of this book was like trying to buy the queens personal diary... I wanted to buy a few copies so I could distribute them to pretty much anyone that comes in contact with my daughter but then again peope might get disturbed if I start handing them out in the street... Thanks again Vicky I had a great learning experience and I laughed a lot too...

I'm about halfway through my copy of Caged in Chaos and enjoying it immensely! I love the writing style - very amusing and friendly. I've been nodding and grinning a lot in recognition. :)

I really identify with the exam results thing. I got A* grades in French and German GCSE, but was far more pleased with my C grades for English. I adore reading and I got a A for the Creative Writing segment, but goodness me, never ever ask me to analyse poetry or Hamlet, because it's like asking me to do something I find completely incomprehensible, backwards. I was just so pleased to get those Cs - it meant I had triumphed when the odds were I'd do a lot worse - showing off my abilities in English was harder than in any other subject.

What a great book! I've just read it tonight. My son and nephew both are dyspraxic as well as Aspergers. (My daughter also has Aspergers and two other nephews!) Phew! As you might guess it runs in my family! I'm from the generation that was just labelled 'stoopid' 'cack-handed' and generally written off for not being able to concentrate in class and do well in exams. It was heartening to know that this highly useful and entertaining book is out there for kids today. I was 'written off' by most teachers and dropped out of school, got into sex and drugs and rock'n'roll... and plenty of trouble. But now i'm a scriptwriter, also with my own company making mobile phone games (www.animentals.com) ((sorry, can I put that here? Please erase if contrary to the rules))

Victoria, thank you so much, I'm giving a copy to my nephew who is 13 and I'll link him up with this site. He's really struggling and it will help MASSIVELY. Totally brilliant. ********************** as many A*s as possible to you.

Greetings to you all.

I'm a young adult with dyspraxia, and Vicky's book really touched me.

I'm in the process of making a short film about dyspraxia and Caged in Chaos has been an excellent resource.
