Sounds exactly like me. I've always been quite slim and underweight and have never had the need to exercise but my PE teachers were horrible and just kept on bugging me. Luckily in Year 11, I just stopped going altogether.

I'm afraid I can't offer any advice though as I hated PE as well.

When i was in primary school i had a teacher who was obsessed with pe. This sounds crazy even to me but we used to miss english lessons to do pe. Also at this time we had a new headteacher and a classroom assistant who was basically evil. Furthermore during these lessons i was repeatedly yelled at and ignored because i couldnt concentrate during football. Even now i am terrified of balls flying in the air. During that year my family complained to the school about the treatment during pe and the teachers never knew about my dyspraxia as the class teacher never told the head or the classroom assistant !!!!

Make sure all of your teachers know about your problems whatever they may be xxxxxxx

Same Kitty, i'm afraid of balls going near me. I hate p.e so much and find any excuse to get out of it i still have 2 years of it. My p.e teacher always wants people to do p.e and thinks no one drops it and i always get very agitated cause I'm always the last one to picked because I'm going to be the rubbish one on the team.

I hated PE too, and at first my teacher was mean to me, but after explaining to her about Dyspraxia she seemed to understood and if the PE lesson involed a lot of co-ordition she would let me do something else. My suggestion is that you talk to your teacher about Dyspraxia - some teachers dont understand what it is until you tell them!

Glad im not the only one scared of balls flying through the air. I think exercise is good for everyone regardless of build etc its just the type of exercise thats offered in schools isnt often dyspraxia friendly like team games and running, maybe have a word with your teacher and see if theres anything else you could try instaed i recently read on here someone is doing pilates instead of p.e.

My p.e teacher isn't too bad as she knows i have dyspraxia but she still makes me do ball games and people at school aren't considerate. I will thanks.

Hi,

I've finally told my SENCO about how I find P.E so bad. I am discussing P.E with her this week but what sort of sports would help? I find any type of ball skills hard and I have low muscle tone? (preferably not swimming ) as other posters have said this to me and my SENCO suggested this and I do not find this interesting and enjoyable!


Thanks!

When I was in primary school I was lucky enough that my teacher was dyspraxic.

I hated P.E until year 6 when the new teacher was dyspraxic. So she understood me and made P.E alot easier, to a point where I really enjoyed it :)
(although in secondary school I'm not liking it so much any more, but I still cope.)

The part I still hate is getting changed...buttons are impossible........

Only advice I an give it explain how your dyspraxic and that you are struggling.

As for swimming, I never learnt to swim so I go play squash instead with who ever is not swimming that week.

I'm REALLY lucky having a P.E teacher that understands :)
