it is all a matter of how you think

dyspraxia is a disabillity so therefore you can say you are disabled. When i fill in a form and when it says 'do you classify yourself a disabled' i always put 'no, however i do have dyspraxia'

Dyspraxia, if severe enough, is classed as a disability and some people get Disability Living Allowance for dyspraxia although this may be due to them having other conditions as well. I personally don't classify myself as disabled but, like Wadey, I will explain on forms etc about my dyspraxia and Aspergers.

Disabled is not being able to do something because your condition gets in the way. Of course Dyspraxia is refurred to as the Hidden Handicap.

Dyspraxia in it's basic form is a kind of brain damage...so what does that say?
