After attempting to rejister four times. ( i got my mums e-mail adress wrong :oops: ), it is good to finaly get on and talk to other Dyspraxic's.

Hiya! I'm Steph and I'm 23. 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

PS. Is your twin dyspraxic as well?
Steph

No, Funny isn't it?, though acordings to TEDS, (Twin Early Development Study) roughly 40% of all Identical twins, only one has a Disability (SPD, APD, Dyspraixa etc), (all of which I have :mrgreen:)

I'm the same age as Steph, I have the same diagnoses as Steph, and I do a similar kind of job to hers. Mercifully I do have a different name. :) I'm Vicky, and I helped to establish Dyspraxic Teens back when I was sixteen. Welcome to the forum, James.

Thanks, To awnser which ever one of you it was who has a twin, it is wierd, Though he shows tendencies its nothing to get picked up, though no0body is a as close as Identical twins. Though I don't think being of ogxygen for a year helped my health.

Hello James, welcome to DT. I'm Remus, I'm 18 and I'm mild dyspraxic (although it's unofficial, trying to get it sorted out). I live in Birmingham, West Midlands where I am currently training to be a zookeeper. I have four cats and two fish and love all sorts of animals! I love books, movies, music, television especially TV series.

Hope you enjoy the boards!
