Let’s Start With The Basic Psychology
There is a thin line between mental disorders and mental illnesses.
Mental disorders and illnesses only come together in one box, and that is the mind.
How your mind functions, thinks, sees the environment and perceives it, all of it comes under the mental disorder category.
But the disorder part comes, when the mental processes of your mind deregulates from its normal function and takes hold of faulty processing changing the way you think and the surrounding reality.
This can either take the delusional side or the schizophrenic side, but today we are here to talk about less critical disorders like Autism Spectrum, Intellectual Disabilities, Language and Speech Disorders, but today we are here to discuss a developmental coordination disorder by the name Dyspraxia.
What Is Dyspraxia?
Dyspraxia is a Developmental Coordination Disorder, which affects the coordination of motor skills around your body; hence it disables your ability of planning or processing tasks in the right way.
This neurological disorder includes problems with movement, coordination, processing and cognitive skills.
This kind of disorder is common during the stage of childhood, where children cannot learn in the proper way, hence sometimes this also leads to self-esteem issues.
This kind of disorder can be noticeable from a very young age, like the time of a baby, where the child cannot put his/her head up straight or do the usual movements that every baby does; hence these are the symptoms that your child will not hit those milestones of achieving something like those other children too.
It is a lifelong disorder and not completely curable, even though he takes professional help because you are encouraging the part of your cognitive, thinking, perceiving and moving skills slowly detaching the motor skills of your body.
What Factors You Assess Before Considering That You Have Dyspraxia?
The very first thing you should start noticing like any other medical related issue, are the symptoms.
The symptoms of the CDC always depend on the age of the individual, which can be a young baby or a child in his adolescent year, but the most common symptoms are body positioning issues, delicate or fragile to loud noises and disorderly body movements which develop along the way.
But How Do You Know You Have Dyspraxia?
Dyspraxia does not affect your ability of understanding and being intelligent, that along the way throughout the years, that there will be a development challenges of your daily routine, like what you often task yourself to do, like cleaning plates or cycling, along the way your motor skills of performing these activities become weak or loses a sense of balance.
Dyspraxia, in the simplest of language, is clumsiness in the functioning of your body. The way autism kids resist from carrying out activities, in the same dyspraxia does the same to you.
If you are cycling, you are likely to lose balance, the inability of keeping a good body posture as your muscles become weak and joints become weaker, stopping you from taking the proper pose and then there is the lack of rhythm in every kind of movement.
