Hey everyone!

Postby CassCat » Mon Oct 10, 2011 1:56 pm

Hi everyone!

My name is Cassi. I live in Sydney, Australia (I figured you guys wouldn't mind me joining in because there's very few Australian based Dyspraxia related things, and I know I'm always using dyspraxia.org.uk as a reference guide). I was diagnosed with Dyspraxia at age 11, after struggling nearly all the way through primary school. I did however forget about it for a long time (I did not get sat down and told what I had and that it would affect me for life), and recently, after hearing celebrities speak about, rediscovered that I had Dyspraxia.

I'm 21, a shop assistant at a fashion store (with a boss who has no clue about Dyspraxia, which makes it really hard to work and not get told off). I adore My Little Pony, anime, Role-playing, gaming (despite not being exceptionally good at certain games) and reading. I have a cat. And I'm thinking about taking up Bass guitar next year.

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

PS. I am another Sydney fan-I went travelling to Australia 3 years ago and loved it!
