Management of Dyspraxia
Children with Dyspraxia need support and understanding in the educational system.
Although Dyspraxia is not curable, with time the child can improve and benefit most from one to one therapy. However, the earlier a child is diagnosed, the better and faster his/her improvement will be.
The followings are the common trainings and therapy of Dyspraxia or treatment:
An occupational therapist will first observe how the child manages with everyday functions both at home and at school. He will then help the child to develop skills specific to activities which may be troublesome.
The speech and language therapist will first carry out an assessment of the child’s speech and then help the child communicate more effectively.
Perceptual motor training
This involves improving the child’s language, visual, movement, and auditory skills. A series of tasks, which gradually becoming more challenging to challenge the child so that he improves in his motor skill.
In a study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, researchers evaluated the effects of equine therapy (therapeutic horse-riding) on a group of 40 children aged 6 to 15 years with dyspraxia. They found that riding therapy stimulated and improved the participants’ cognition, mood and gait parameters.
Play is a way children learn about the environment and about themselves. It is where a very young child’s physical and emotional learning, their development of language, their spatial awareness, the development of what their senses are, all come together.
