The Dyspraxia Foundation is the only national charity in the UK dedicated to raising awareness and providing support and advice to those with Dyspraxia/DCD, their families and those with an interest in the condition from across the country. We work tirelessly to enable people with dyspraxia to reach their full potential in life through responding to queries, holding conferences, and publishing literature. Our vision is a world in which dyspraxia/DCD is understood and where it is not a barrier to opportunity and fulfilment.


The objectives of the Dyspraxia Foundation are:

To support individuals and families affected by dyspraxia

To promote better diagnostic and treatment facilities for those who have dyspraxia

To help professionals in health and education to assist those with dyspraxia

To promote awareness and understanding of dyspraxia

Each year we answer approximately 10,000 enquiries and distribute more than 20,000 leaflets about the condition. We seek every opportunity to increase understanding of dyspraxia, particularly among professionals in health and education.

The Foundation is run by less than six full-time equivalent paid staff and is supported extensively by volunteers. Our work is funded entirely by voluntary donation and membership subscriptions.
