My daughter has been in therapy for her 2 disorders since the age of two-and-a half years old. She has dyspraxia or difficulty with motor planning. We all need motor planning to do any task from brushing our teeth to tying our shoes so problems in this area affect ones whole life.
Dyspraxia can also affect how one is able to think of a planning out coordinated movements or even executing a plan of movements even if they are known. Such as how to get oneself a scoop of ice cream. For Elizabeth it is hard to put into order the steps needed to achieve this task. We know it is…
- go to the freezer
- get out the ice cream
- get a dish
- get the ice cream scoop
- and now scoop.
Elizabeth needs to work hard to think out the steps. Dyspraxia affects all part of her daily life. Each and every day. You can read more about our therapies in my upcoming book. I Believe In You. I hope you will take the journey with us

What is Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD)?
Elizabeth has severe SPD, when she was little, about 2 years old,she could not tolerate shoes on her feet, the feel of the grass, being in a bathtub. ANY SENSATION WAS TOO MUCH FOR HER TO HANDLE—EVEN A HUG. It was a tough, sad time. But we started the right therapy and she started to improve. Our therapy continues to this day. Please read more in the book. It will make you see all the good that can come of therapy.
