Hi all

Postby Macha » Sun Sep 27, 2009 10:10 pm

Hi. I'm 16 and I'm from Ireland.

I have dyspraxia (well duh, because I'm here, I suck at introductions), but it's not very bad compared to some people. This, combined with the fact that I'm very good academically, meant it wasn't really picked up until I was around 12. The system here is very slow, so at 14, I was assesed by someone with the education system. She wasn't qualified to make to diagnose, but that it was very likely that I had dyspraxia or dysgraphia. Earlier this year, I went to an occupational therapist (2 years to set it up, told you it was slow)

While it's not very bad, it does still cause a few problems. I'm about the only person in the world that can read my own normal writing (this is actually what tipped them off), loud noises/bright lights are painful to me, I'm very clumsy, I hate crowds and sometimes I'll begin to reply to someone then forget what they said.

My interests are mainly computers (gaming and programming) and reading. I suck at anything physical.

Hiya! I'm Steph and I'm 22. 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

Most types: Simcity, openTTD, Team Fortress 2, command and conquer generals: zero hour are some of my favorites.

My PC's specs are:

Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 (2.4 Ghz)
4GB RAM
Ubuntu x86/Ubuntu x64/Windows Vista multi-boot
2 x 250GB HDD
ATI Radeon Mobility HD 3650 (256mb)

And it's a laptop.
