The first dyspraxia support group started on 30th Jan at Arc. It turned out to be an enjoyable meeting. The group members shared their experiences of how dyspraxia affects them. The charity gained a wealth of knowledge about the condition by identifying issues affecting members. The members filled in a short questionnaire. Volunteers and parents attended the meeting, engaging in active discussions about the condition and explaining how they would like to help the group. In the next session, we will produce a flow chart and explore fundraising opportunities for the group as agreed by members. Empowering members plays a key role. We would like to thank the Arc for generously providing a regular venue for the meetings. Facebook section is designed to be interactive, to encourage users to engage in the site.
