Perhaps you mean Dysgraphia, a disorder that is similar to dyslexia, which is something I had issues with and still do at times. Good to hear you escaped the Big Pharma lie that leads you into their trap of dependency.

BTW: Dyspraxia is a physical coordination disorder. It can often be so severe as to make the victim unable to write or have other motor coordination issues that are debilitating.

Zedta, I have taught several students with dyspaxia and its most common effect (in the relatively moderate cases I've seen) is that the physical act of writing letters and words requires so much concentration that the child cannot concentrate on both composing ideas and writing them down at the same time.  The coordination issues disrupt the ability to communicate through writing.  Dysgraphia is pretty similar though.  Honestly, I think the interventions used to help students in both cases are pretty much the same.  

Jeeter, isn't it amazing the impact those chemicals have on a child's brain.  Have you tried caffeine to treat the ADHD?  From what I understand, the child's body actually slows down with the coffee etc.  It might help . . .
