Personally I don't know, after a quick internet search I'm still at a lost :?

To be quite honest I think Dyspraxics SHOULD be able to because of the difficulties we encounter-obviously some of us have different degrees and variations but it's a valid point.

Depends which sort and how severe your dyspraxia is.

I would imagine so but I don't really know what the whole guidelines are.

I dont know about the Paralympics but I'm certain we can enter the Special Olympics. Although personally I'm terrible at sports.

As a point there is a slight problem with Dyspraxics entering into the paralympics....

Many people judge and when they judge a Dyspraxic person the main one is "There's nothing wrong with him/her" because they can't see it
Someone without a limb, or wheelchair bound is obvious to the average person that they have a disability.

So if this Dyspraxic wins: "Oh, there's nothing wrong with you, so you ought to win"
and if they lose: "You're normal and you were beaten by someone without an arm!" (Mockery ensues)
(By the above I don't mean offence, but it is generally the judgement of the populas)

So despite the difficulty with Dyspraxia people will judge on what they can see...no matter what difficulty lies within the minds of others.
