Dyspraxia Foundation

The Dyspraxia Foundation is a national, registered charity with its Head Office based in Hitchin with just 3 full time and 1 part-time administrative members of staff it is financed entirely by membership subscriptions and donations
Mission
The Dyspraxia Foundation is committed to making the teaching and medical professions more aware of dyspraxia; and to spread understanding of how those who have the condition can be helped.
Company Overview
The Dyspraxia Foundation is a country Wide charity, founded in 1987 as the Dyspraxia Trust by two mothers who met at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children. After being told that their children had Dyspraxia they were astonished and dismayed to discover that no facilities existed to help or inform parents and children with the condition. They decided to form their own group to help others to help themselves.
Today the Foundation, with its head quarters in Hitchin, answers approximately 10,000 enquiries and distributes more then 20,000 leaflets about the condition annually. The Foundation seeks every opportunity to increase understanding of Dyspraxia, particularly among professionals in health and education and encourages its local groups to do the same. It continues to encourage the smaller local groups to thrive and develop their own ideas and to distribute information and fund raise for themselves.
