Training courses for teachers and assistants

Discover how you can support your students with simple strategies and techniques (that actually work) and are easy to fit in to your classroom routines. Professional training packages are now available for delivery in schools, colleges and Universities. Please contact us to discuss your service requirements and staff training needs.


Training for occupational therapists

Training is offered to qualified and experienced OTs in assessing children, adolescents and adults with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)/Dyspraxia.


You learn through a relaxed mix of current theory and best practice using standardised assessments and clinical observation skills. As a group, you are encouraged to discuss your experiences to learn from each other using reflective practice techniques. Our specialist training courses will give you experience and confidence to assess people with Dyspraxia and to advise on appropriate recommendations and strategies.


Professional supervision

Professional supervision is offered by either phone or SKYPE to help you provide the best service for your clients with Dyspraxia. Please enquire for current rates.



After training some Occupational Therapists may become Associates of Dyspraxia UK; others may add these skills to their NHS roles, and some will broaden their Independent Practice.  If you would like more information about becoming an Associate of Dyspraxia UK please email:


Considering independent practice?

If you like what we do and you have excellent skills to offer, you could join our happy team of advanced Occupational Therapy assessors. Five years post qualifying experience is essential, with evidence of neurological and/or paediatric experience.

I really did come away from the course feeling very positive and that I had really benefitted from accessing the programme.  I suppose as an OT within paediatrics, more focus on the intervention piece within this client group would have enhanced this further.  I still found the adolescent/adult piece very helpful as I do work with children right up to 18 years.
