It is a dyspraxic trait. It is a problem with the organisation of thought and language.

The first thing is just to blurt out your rough ideas. Don't worry if they seem jumbled or irrelevant - you can sort them out later. Write them down in any way that makes sense to you. You could just type out words at random, make a list, speak into a tape recorder, or draw a mind map. It depends what kind of thinker you are.

Once you have got your ideas laid out in a rough sort of shape, you can begin work on the actual writing. Do essay plans work for you? My special needs teacher used to give them to me: a set of boxes with different questions and subheadings to help me plan more appropriately. They never really worked for me (my chief problem with essays was that I found the questions too easy and added extra information, rather than anything dyspraxia-related) but it sounds as though a plan like that could help you.

And PM me your coursework when you're finished, if possible. I will check it over for you if you like.
