Hello my name is Catherine. I research dyspraxia everyday. Iwant to find a doctor or a professional that know all about it. I didn't find anyone yet. I live in united States and dyspraxia isn't that well known here. I don't want to go to a doctor that got no idea of the disorder. I don't want to be cute of it,I just want to improve on my speech, how to intake information and social skill. I don't think people take me seriously because the way I talk. They say I have to see a OT, PT, therapist and a speech therapist. Ok but I want atleast know about this disorder.Can everyone help?

    Hello there @KITTYCAT88, thanks for making this post. It's understandable to wnat to know more about your condition, especially since it can help you to better manage with it.

    Do you have a local doctor who you can speak with about it? They may not have specialist knowledge, but they may be able to point you in the direction of where you could see somebody who does have.

    Hi @KITTYCAT88, I thought I was the only one awake this time of the morning! Though I'm not sure what the time is where you are, it is 5.06 in London and I've been awake since around 3.30 am. 

    We are not allowed to give medical advice on this forum but we can say that seeking professional medical advice is the best step to take if you need information about a specific condition. Also, there may be a charity in the States dealing with dyspraxia and they could give you good advice and assistance. Good luck!

    Hi @KITTYCAT88, I've just looked it up and there is a Charity called Dyspraxia Foundation USA. Hopefully they should be able to help you in some way, provide you with information, assistance and maybe suggest a suitable specialist you could consult. Best wishes to you.
