The book offers excellent advice throughout numerous areas of difficulty including organisation of both self and home, communication and relationships, leisure activities, study skills and very useful tips on how to cope with the workplace. The clarity with which the information is presented, not only helps those who struggle to cope with Dyspraxia, but also enables those with a wider interest in improving generic provision to understand the day to day issues faced by the adult with DCD/Dyspraxia. The information given is both positive and practical. -- Patoss
