4-5% of children in schools have dyspraxia and around 60-70% continue to have challenges into adulthood.

Most importantly, dyspraxia often overlaps with other learning difficulties including dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). 100 Ideas for Secondary Teachers: Supporting Students with Dyspraxia covers key areas that are challenging for students with dyspraxia as they arrive at secondary school, move through the school and then eventually leave, and shows teachers how to practically assist them at every stage.

International experts Amanda Kirby and Lynne Peters explore difficulties that secondary school students with dyspraxia may encounter, including motor functioning difficulties, sports, and social difficulties such as making and sustaining friendships.

Amanda and Lynne use practical examples and solutions, from providing ICT guidance to dealing with emotional difficulties, and consider the impact on the everyday functioning of schools.

In doing so, they present the first book to specifically focus on dyspraxia in secondary schools making it ideal for exploring what can be done at an individual, class and whole-school level to provide the best support for students with dyspraxia.
