These simple exercises can be taught by anyone and no specialist supervision or equipment is required.
This book demonstrates how regular exercise routines that are tailored specifically to the needs of children with dyspraxia can make a real difference, improving muscle activation, neural control and overall movement skills. This practical guide will be essential resource for parents, Physical Education teachers, and other teachers of recreation and games classes who are looking to help children with dyspraxia to reduce weakness and improve motor skills.
