Adult Assessment Protocol Project

With funding from Dyspraxia Ireland, Dr. Dorothy Armstrong is exploring new ways to assist people with DCD/Dyspraxia. Dr. Armstrong is undertaking a research project to develop a new protocol for the diagnosis of DCD/Dyspraxia in adults. Previous research, including Dr. Armstrong’s own PhD, has largely focused on children and young people, but Dyspraxia is a lifelong condition, and it is essential that we have a clear process for diagnosing it in adults both to ensure they get needed supports, and to promote understanding and compassion for the person themselves.

This ambitious, nine month project will see Dr. Armstrong thoroughly research and design a new protocol for assessment, funded by Dyspraxia Ireland and the Deloitte Impact Fund.
