Dyspraxia ain’t autism but it’s a condition which makes people clumsy with coordination, brain, words and just in life but clever in their own way
Well, yeah, that's why it's important to get a proper assessment as there are lots of crossovers with other conditions.

Oddly enough I seem to recall dyslexia , dyspraxia and Dyscalcula all being lumped together with Aspergers and ADHD under the ASD umbrella .
That was over 20 years ago though ..

I found these little snippets anyway ..

1) speech apraxia – a relatively rare disorder – affects up to 65 percent of children with autism.

2) Although Dyspraxia may occur in isolation, it frequently coexists with other conditions such as Aspergers Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), Dyslexia, language disorders and social, emotional and behavioural impairments.

It's not a game, it's a healthy discussion, should we sweep disability under the carpet, its not the 1950s!

You can also be rather nasty, is that your condition as well?

I think this is unfair, I don’t think anybody has been rude in this thread. Autism is commonly diagnosed nowadays but they were pretty sparse back when I was young and probably next to non-existent when LT was young (no offence).

The subject of adult autism is interesting because there’s probably millions of undiagnosed cases.

Indeed... in fact I feel sure there are a few of our fellow TIBB posters who tick an awful lot of boxes


I was born in the late 1950’s and I always knew I was different .. .. I just seemed to perceive things differently to everyone else .

I was lucky enough to attend a good school ,a grammar school yet I hated every single minute - it was a very difficult time for a loner like myself. It didn’t help that the teachers were strict and had high expectations .

Anyways, I often struggled with things others could do yet equally when the class were all having trouble I’d find that part relatively simple .

Turns out I was an extremely ‘visual’ learner .

It was a great relief in my 30’s to learn about autism and Asperger’s syndrome and suddenly have a reason to explain all my seemingly odd traits .

Lucky for most kids these days with conditions like these they have parents who now understand what it actually is.

The little ****, is no more..

It is one of the ‘traits’ ... interestingly noticing the small details in life of also an indication of intelligence ... which is reassuring ...

It may explain why I was such a brilliant sniper whilst playing Call of Duty2 multiplayer online
