    Hi I'm hoping for some advice,I'm not sure where I need to post,my child has a statement of special educational needs,he was seen by a educational phychologist,who caried out a assessment using the British ability scales,during the assessment he said he picked up on that my child my having a coordination disorder or difficulty,I can't remember which word he used,I've since had the educational psychologist report and he hasn't written nothing in his report about this,I have tried to contact him on numerous occasions,but I can't seem to get hold of him,do you have any idea what he may have meant by it,thanks Kayley

    Hi Kayleym,
    Probably dyspraxia, also called developmental coordination disorder. If you have still not heard back from the psychologist contact the Health and Care Professions Council for advice.
