Dyspraxia ServiceTreatment at Blaire House

Normal Programme

  • children are seen individually with their parents for an assessment
  • an individual care plan is made to include: 
    • summary of findings 
    •  goals for future progress 
    •  programme of activities to be continued with daily 
    •  advice to parents and teachers  
  •  children are seen individually for 8/10 weeks followed by a update 6 weeks later.

Long Distance Programme

For families who either live abroad or a long distance from the Practice we offer a long distance programme. This involves giving the first treatment at the time of the assessment and seeing children fortnightly  instead of on a weekly basis. Parents are shown how to progress the programme at home. However, it should be stressed that parents must be committed  to ensure that the same progress is made as for the normal programme.

Lectures to schools and parents

This is a 2 hour lecture which covers the definition of Dyspraxia, how to identify the condition, how to make referrals and strategies to help the child both in the classroom and at home. A video is used to assist delegates to see how a child with Dyspraxia copes at school and the concerns of the parent. Delegates are given the opportunity to look at and try some of the games and activities that may be beneficial for these children.

Aims of the course:

For each delegate:

  • To have an understanding of the definition of Dyspraxia and related conditions 
  • To understand the relevance of co-morbidity with other conditions 
  • To have some understanding of the causes of the condition 
  • Know how to identify the condition 
  • Know how to make a referral to the relevant agencies 
  • Consider current research in England and the effectiveness of treatment 
  • Have some knowledge and understanding of the different therapies available 
  • Knowledge of strategies and ideas to help a child in both the school and home environment

In addition, to lecturing at schools the practice offers free lectures to teachers at Blaire House twice a year. The lecture in September is aimed at teachers in junior and senior schools while the lecture in March is aimed at teachers in nursery schools and reception classes as well as for Health Visitors.

Please contact Bernadette Mohan, Practice Secretary, for details on prices.

In addition we welcome teachers to the practice to observe our work and are happy to answer any queries or concerns about pupils.
