How to improve co ordination

Postby dyspraxic93 » Sat Jul 02, 2011 2:52 pm

These are my problems

1. When walking I can suddenly lose my balance and go to fall
2. Handling money is very nerve-wracking
3. When I talk my lips move weirdly, don't know if that's because of dyspraxia?


Please give me tips!

If you think you are going to fall then put out both arms to help you keep your balance.
Handling money quickly can be difficult. Just smile calmy and try the best you can.
Not sure about the lips.

Not sure these are very good. Someone please give some better ones!!

I think with handling money, just relax. Be confident- that is the best advice I can give.

I'm not sure about the lips.

Sorry I could not be more helpful.....

if i put my arms out when i am about to falll over, i usually go crashing into something :oops:
trampolining is supposed to help though...

From experience playing puzzle and mind games (like chess) helps to structure your life. For co-ordination I would say computer games helped me! When I first played them I would miss jumps but as time progressed my timing and accuracy improved and it also reflected in my everyday life as well!
