Symptoms of dyspraxia: Dyspraxia is a common neurological or brain-based disorder that affects movement and coordination. For those who have dyspraxia, every task that requires coordination is challenging. Like learning sports or driving. It does not affect anyone’s intelligence but can affect their fine motor skills. This may include the use of text or small objects.

As described on the Dyspraxia Foundation’s website, it affects a person’s ability to move in a smooth, coordinated manner.
