Hi, I'm Robyn, I'm 13 and going into year 9 and school.

I was diagnosed with dyspraxia when I was 7/8 I was bullied ever since I started primary school- The worst was in year 3 and children would call me a freak and the teachers did nothing really to help. I moved schools but still I had 1 friend and everyone else just thought I was weird. But in yr 6 it got alot better when I moved school again and my teacher was dyspraxic! She understood me and made life alot easier.

Secondary school has been really hard, that is why I joined the forum because I starting to struggle alot more and it is starting to feel like yr 3 when I had a low self esteem and struggled to do most things. Especially writing, getting changed (buttons and zips and tie's and laces) And I don't like most subjects at school because I shy away from things that involve alot of .....thinking (the best way I can put it.)

I like maths and music. Maths is nice because it is simple, there is only a right answer, and in exams there is not alot of writing. I like music because it calms me down. I have just done my grade 2 piano and I'm working on my grade 6 clarinet, grade 6 music theory and grade 4 saxophone. :)

Hiya! I'm Steph and I'm 24. 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

Hi Lucy, and wow- :shock: 9 guinee pigs!! My sister has 2, I really want a hamster.

Hey Lucy, haha, I like your cats name!

Hiya Steph, when I'm older I really want to work with children or people with a disability. Although my big dream is to play in a west end orchestra (especially Les Miserable!! )

Hi, Jen, romantic music is not really my style, I'm more jazz , blues, west end music and some classicals. Oh and is maybe your keyboard broken because all your posts seem to be in capitals??


Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! :D :mrgreen:
