Supporting Children with Dyspraxia

Does your child face challenges when it comes to planning, sequencing, or completing everyday activities like dressing themselves or tying shoelaces? Do they struggle with balance, coordination or find it difficult to participate in sports and physical activities compared to their
peers? Have you noticed messy handwriting or issues with their speech or language development?

These signs are commonly associated with a condition called Dyspraxia in children.

Dyspraxia can impact speech and language development.
Children with Dyspraxia may find it challenging to have a clear idea and organise their language in order to express themselves effectively. This can result in difficulties with communication and academic tasks.

Dyspraxia can significantly impact a child’s life, affecting their ability to concentrate, learn and thrive in various environments.

 We are here to help

We’re here to help you navigate these challenges and support your child’s development.

The Cluas Programme is specially designed to provide personalised support and an evidence-based approach to support children with dyspraxia.

Meet Shane

Shane has difficulties dressing and often sits on the end of his bed, struggling to put on his socks. His mother has painstakingly shown him how many times, but left to do it himself, he cannot manage it. Shane often has to be shown how to play with toys, he is not able to decide for himself the most appropriate way of playing with the toy or game. He finds it very difficult to organise himself to do his homework. He often forgets to put toothpaste on his brush and brushes his teeth without it. Shane also appears clumsy and a bit awkward. Shane has motor planning difficulties or Dyspraxia.


There are three steps involved in motor planning – also called Praxis

Step 1: Have an idea of what he wants to do
Step 2: Organise how to do it and sequence the steps involved
Step 3: Take action, or execute an unfamiliar motor activity

We created a specific individual programme of therapy to address Shane’s difficulties. Underlying Shane’s Dyspraxia was a vestibular system deficit. The vestibular system influences a wide range of activities, from balance and coordination to sensory integration and planning, and sequencing.

Discovering Cluas

Shane’s Cluas Programme resulted in much improved sensory processing and motor planning. Following the initial stages of his programme, the activities during his daily sessions were geared towards giving Shane the opportunity to try out tasks that previously would have been impossible for him and had caused him great frustration. Shane was supported in attempting planning and sequencing and other activities, which he previously would have shied away from. To his surprise, these were much easier than ever before.

Shane’s mother now reports that he is less frustrated when playing with his brothers. His homework has become less of a chore; he is generally less awkward and clumsy and is beginning to enjoy sports. He is much happier and confident in himself, is making new friends, and has even joined a basketball club.

    “… Soracha was refusing to go to school and since starting the Cluas program she has greatly improved in her self-esteem. It was a bit of a struggle to get her to keep the headphones on but as she noticed the improvements she did not mind it anymore…”
