I have many books about DCD/Dyspraxia because I am a parent of a child with multiple diagnosis - this being one. This is the most useful book I have because it is very practical and helps me manage the daily, little things that come up constantly. I reread it often, as it is a very short book. If you are the parent of a child with Developmental Dyspraxia, this book should be in your home.
