Can you be Dyspraxic but hit all childhood milestones?

I am a teenager and I have really bad problems with balance, throwing and catching, over sensitive to touch, smell and taste, obsessive behaviour, pretty bad fine motor skills, and a few more I could list. I know I am different from others my age and recently came across Dyspraxia.


However, when I was younger I could walk and talk as early as other children and didn't have any major problems with dressing myself (apart from buttons and laces sometimes) or writing, though I still cant use a knife and fork properly.


Could this be Dyspraxia or not?
Thank u.

It could be dyspraxia-not everybody is affected in the same way. My milestones were delayed but I know other people with dyspraxia who weren't delayed in reaching them at all.
