Survey of Provision for Children with Dyspraxia / DCD (Development Coordination Disorder)in the Republic of Ireland

Renee Ralph

About the Study

To date, there would appear to be no coordinated body of data available in any government department or state health and education agency concerning the number of children with Dyspraxia/DCD in Ireland.

The results of this study indicate that parents are concerned with diagnostic procedures, follow-up advisory and support services, and the general level of awareness within schools of the nature of Dyspraxia/DCD.

This study has provided the first database on children with Dyspraxia/DCD in the Republic of Ireland and on their parents experiences of, and opinions on, the advisory and therapeutic recommendations arising directly from its findings.

These have direct implications for Dyspraxia/DCD Ireland, the Department of health, Education and Science, the teacher training colleges and the National Council for Special Education.
