We aim to make a series of video blogs (vlogs), in which we will be discussing various issues around dyspraxia, how we are affected and what can be done to improve life for those of us who are dyspraxic.
We have already made a pilot, (it can be seen here), and are aware that there is much polishing to do before our vlogs can be regarded as slick and professional! We will, however, aim to improve as we go along! There was much hilarity during the making of the pilot video and a small selection of outtakes can also be seen on the 'videos' page.
We invite comments and suggestions on each of our videos, from other people who either have dyspraxia or believe they may have it, but please, no comments along the lines of "you are a pair of idiots!" We already know that!
Our Dyspraxia Awareness Training courses are tailored to the needs of our students and we pride ourselves on counting, among our satisfied course participants, teachers, parents, employers and grandparents. The courses are designed to be interactive and, as well as giving information on dyspraxia, students are given the opportunity to gain an insight into how it actually feels to have dyspraxia.
Courses cover the nature and possible causes of dyspraxia, signs and symptoms, how dyspraxia affects us in childhood, adolescence and adulthood, practical exercises, some solutions to the problems of living with dyspraxia and plenty of discussion.
The most recent course delivered at East Kent College was rated 5 out of 5 for content, usefulness, interest and delivery by every student in attendance!
Barbara has an ITEC qualification in Anatomy & Physiology, as well as a PTLLS teaching certificate and, of course, both Barbara and Matthew have been dyspraxic since birth.
Courses have been delivered via East Kent College, (formerly Thanet College), but we are also happy for you to contact us to discuss your requirements. We are very keen to raise awareness of dyspraxia and would love to hear from you. Please contact us via The Two Dyspraxics facebook group or call 07926 994820.
