How it all began
The founder, Pritthijit Datta, set up Dyspraxia Support in November 2015 to support local people who are affected by dyspraxia in the Tees Valley region.
Pritthijit, himself, is dyspraxic and set up the charity to help others combat negative experiences he has had in his own life.
We host fortnightly sessions for local people affected by dyspraxia on Saturday afternoons between 1-3pm at the ARC in Stockton.
ARC, Stockton Arts Centre
Stockton on Tees
These sessions are designed as an opportunity for young people, and their families, to connect with other people who encounter similar challenges and offer one another mutual support and advice. It is also a chance for dyspraxic individuals, who are vulnerable to isolation as a result of their condition, to socialise in a comfortable space.
We also often have guest speakers, workshops and activities that can help young people with dyspraxia learn new things and develop their skills.
We also run a parents and children dyspraxia support group.
For information on upcoming sessions please see the Dates for your Diary page.
Dyspraxia Support runs under the umbrella of Roseberry Community Consortium.
