How should I prepare for an appointment to diagnose dyspraxia?

If a parent or teacher suspects that a child has a dyspraxia learning disability, an appointment with a learning specialist can help with a diagnosis. The specialist can explain terms that can help the parents understand the disability and can make recommendations for treatment. Being prepared with observations of the child's behavior and being able to identify what they can or cannot do may assist the specialist in planning a treatment program. Providing information about any family history of learning disorders will also assist the specialist in treatment.
