Treatment for co-occurring disorders with dyspraxia
Children with dyspraxia have a unique set of difficulties, and all these different issues may get treated simultaneously with it. Learning about these other issues that co-occur commonly with dyspraxia like dyscalculia, dyslexia, dysgraphia and ADHD, and depression and anxiety is also important. Hence, one must also be sensitive to signs that may point toward such issues. These problems may require different kinds of treatment under the supervision of various specialists in healthcare. For example, ADHD may require medication and behavioural therapy, while depression or anxiety may need clinical treatment.
Teaching children self-advocacy skills is also crucial as having dyspraxia can impact self-esteem and result in related issues. One must learn to build and maintain confidence to ensure that the child does not lose faith in themselves, which requires active parental involvement.
