Hats on for Christmas (Dyspraxia Foundation Christmas Appeal 2014)
Dyspraxia is a form of Developmental Coordination Disorder which affects fine and/or gross motor coordination in children and adults. It can also have an impact on speech. There is currently no cure. It can have a serious impact on the individual’s life and can cause great hardship for all those involved.
Please read this article, called ‘What is Dyspraxia? (The Basics)’, for further details:
This Christmas please get involved in the ‘Dyspraxia Foundation Christmas Appeal 2014’ named ‘Hats on for Christmas’. This appeal aims to raise as much awareness as possible for the learning condition. It hopes to do so by showing the faces of all those affected but also all the love and support they have received.
You can help get involved by following these three simple steps:
Take a photograph of yourself wearing some sort of Christmas hat and holding up a piece of paper that says something about Dyspraxia.
Then either post your photograph onto the ‘Dyspraxia Foundation’ Facebook Page found here https://www.facebook.com/dyspraxiafoundation?fref=ts or by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will do it for you. They will also add all photographs to their Twitter Page.
Many people have got involved already, so why not join in.
If you like you can make a voluntary donation to the brilliant Dyspraxia Foundation, who continues to help thousands of people affected by the condition.
To do so text ‘HATS02 £2’ to 70070
You can change your profile pictures on social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter, to their Dyspraxia Foundation Christmas logo. This will help spread lots of awareness across many social media platforms.
I have had Dyspraxia since I was a child, but was only diagnosed at the age of eighteen. Like many, I know the importance of getting the word out there so those impacted can get the support they need and ultimately deserve. So I have decided to get involved myself. Here is my photograph, hoping to send a good message out for Dyspraxia.
Thanks for the continual support everyone and have a great week.
Here is my poster to raise awareness for Dyspraxia.

Remember that people with Dyspraxia are not only Dyspraxic but they can also be fantastic
