Is my Idea good? my goal is to raise awareness to dyspraxia

I made a facebook page about dyspraxia, called "Another Dyspraxic"

That is this link, my goal is to help bring more understanding to Dyspraxia!
Are you not fed up of people asking if you meant dyslexia? or having to explain what it is but not knowing how? Because I sure am! So i think we should try and work together help people know and understand what dyspraxia really is, if we help bring understanding then in the future, other people with dyspraxia may receive help :D Do you think my idea is good? :D :D

I've liked your page. Hopefully one day Dyspraxia will be as well known as Dyslexia. All awareness for Dyspraxia is a good idea. :D

I think it is a very good idea. I used to get so annoyed when people referred to me as dyslexic. I'm not dyslexic-I'm dyspraxic! I met a dyspraxic guy at a BBQ who is dating a work colleague of mine-we spent around an hour comparing life stories!

That sounds a good conversation at a BBQ, Steph.
Some people have dyslexia and dyspraxia which must be really hard. I feel very lucky I'm not Dyslexic. However I do have Irlen syndrome so I do have some difficulties with reading. Small print isn't good and I like books with lots of direct speech and paragraphs. I find some fonts difficult to read and I prefer to read of cream paper instead of white paper. I tend to skip words when I read which is worse when I'm tired or stressed. This is why I read mostly young adult/teenage books even though I'm 30 now.

I feel you, it's very annoying, then people ask me what it is and well, to be honest, I do not find dyspraxia easy to explain because it's just well it's a lot of things isn't it?

*Likes your page*

Yeah, I think it is a great idea! I have noticed that there are a lot ore people my age who know about dyspraxia, but still the wider population has less awareness. I also don't really know any dyspraxics in real life :? . I think you all must be hiding because I hear about people knowing other people with dyspraxia, but when I mention dyspraxia I never get "I have it too" or anything.

Dyspraxia can be hard to explain, I mean it goes beyond just having bad hand eye coordination. I can especially find it more difficult to explain my emotional quirks and the fact that I have good days and bad days.

It's an awesome idea! Every website, blog, video, page and like will help spread Dyspraxia Awareness! :lol:

The more there is out there the easier it will be to find info.

Good luck with it!

This is a brilliant idea! I'm seriously sick of having to explain what dyspraxia is! I hope it works! :)
