Finally, a new blog post! Apologies for how long it has been since my last blog post. I can’t believe the last time I wrote a blog post was in August! I’ve been so busy with uni that I just haven’t had time to blog. I’m planning to blog more over the summer though, I have quite a few ideas and much more time to write them (although saying that, I’ve actually been really busy since finishing my exams last month!)
So for this blog post I thought I’d update you all on what I’ve been doing in terms of awareness raising since I last blogged.

Tying shoe laces is, I feel, one of the most common difficulties talked about in relation to dyspraxia, due to our difficulties with fine motor skills. But what can be done to help? I’ve personally found that there are so many different options out there for different types of laces that it can be hard to know which type to get. In addition, some people may have never heard about some of these laces before. So for that reason I thought I would write a blog where I essentially review different types of ‘laces’ I have used.

After reading Rosie’s latest blog on how to blog, I thought I’d write a blog about blogging – how I started, why I blog etc. for those of you who would like to find out more.

I know my usual blog posts are about dyspraxia, but I also have a skin condition called vitiligo which I wanted to blog about. I’ve actually been meaning to write this particular blog post for a couple of years now, but each year I’ve never got round to writing the blog post in time (except this year of course – only just, though!)

It’s been a while…but now I’ve finished my second year of uni for summer, hopefully I’ll be updating my blog more regularly!
In exactly three weeks time I am completing the British 10k for Dyspraxia Foundation. Last year I walked the 10k, but shortly after I decided that I wanted to challenge myself further for this year’s event and jog parts of it too! I thought I’d write this blog post to talk about the preparation I’ve been doing.

Sorry it’s been a while since my last blog post! I’ve been so busy with uni, but anyway, I’ve finally had the chance to write a new post.
So, dyspraxia and auditory processing. This is something which I’ve only really found out about fairly recently. I knew I found particular things hard of course, but what I didn’t know was that it was all part of ‘auditory processing’ – which is, to put it simply, the way in which we process sound.

“She talks about her dyspraxia on the internet where anyone can see, she must find it so easy to explain dyspraxia to other people!” is what you may be thinking. However, that’s not completely true. Whilst blogging about dyspraxia has definitely given me more confidence when talking about it to other people, disclosing dyspraxia is something I still struggle with at times.
