Product description

Review

The author describes muscle weakness as one of the major causes of dyspraxia and gives practical, easy, and fun, exercises to build strength and endurance and at the same time, confidence. -- Sensory and More, www.sensoryandmore.com The book is aimed at parents, classroom teachers and P.E. teachers and provides them with exercises to improve strength and fitness by focussing on familiar activities such as running, jumping and ball play... The programme itself is simple and involves little in the way of equipment... This exercise programme would be of benefit to a wide population of children, not just those with dyspraxia and as such, it contributes to the body of work in this field. -- SEN Magazine This insightful and practical guide will arm the reader with a detailed knowledge of dyspraxia's symptoms, its history, and the conflicting diagnoses surrounding its still unknown causes, plus a recommended exercise program designed by Platt to beat the disability... Complete with helpful illustrations, photographs, diagrams, figures, tables, and bulleted and numbered lists, this guide is extremely educational in terms of background... during his research and is an expert on dyspraxia. His dedication to uncovering a cause and a cure for this condition is admirable, and anyone who suffers from, or knows someone who suffers from, dyspraxia should read this guide. -- Foreword Reviews Platt offers an insightful overview of issues faced by individuals with dyspraxia, a condition that is not well understood even by specialists... [His] exercise program offers a simple and useful resource that can be applied to a wide variety of settings, appropriate for children with typical development as well as those with dyspraxia. -- Lisa A. Kurtz, M.Ed., OTR/L, FAOTA, paediatric occupational therapist and author of Understanding Controversial Therapies for Children with Autism, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Other Learning Disabilities This is a well-researched book that gives a much needed insight into dyspraxia. It details a straightforward strength and fitness programme and explores the ways in which regular exercise can make a significant difference in the lives of young people with dyspraxia. The background to dyspraxia and the importance of exercise are explained in detail. This gives valuable insight into the experiences of young people... this book should be read by anyone who is, or could be, teaching a young person with dyspraxia... it is easy to understand and written in such a way that the key messages are not lost. -- Physical Education Matters
