Dyspraxia: A Whole School Approach

In response to the new model for allocating resources to children with special needs, staff at St. Brigid’s are planning to co-ordinate a whole school approach to Dyspraxia during the next school year. This is a common issue affecting fine and/or gross motor coordination in children and adults. Dyspraxia may be also be oral, verbal or relate to ideas or spaces.
