Dyspraxia : does anybody in South Africa know about the condition ?


There are Dyspraxia ass. all over the world ..... why dont we have one ?
Why dont we know about it ? No South African health website knows about it.
My granddaughter has the condition. She is 4 years old ,cannot speak,has hearing problems and walk with difficulty. Her condition is accurately described by overseas health authorities.

I want to make contact very urgently with anybody that knows anything about this condition !

My daughter has dyspraxia and I am investigating starting a Dyspraxia Support Group in Joburg. I see your post was in 2013, so I hope you receive this message!
