Type of disease: Rare conditions

Dyspraxia is a disorder that affects motor skill development. People with dyspraxia have trouble planning and completing fine motor tasks that vary from simply waving goodbye to more complex tasks such as brushing teeth. A person with dyspraxia can learn to function independently. Special learning methods and repeated practice of basic tasks can help, and sometimes occupational, physical, or speech therapy is also needed.
