The main treatment for dyspraxia is
(OT). Occupational therapists work with people on different motor skills and physical tasks they struggle with. For example, they might help kids learn how to hold and use scissors or throw and catch a ball.
Physical therapy can also be part of a treatment plan for some people. Therapists can work on building body strength, if that’s part of a person’s trouble with movement.
People who struggle with movement may also get accommodations at school or at work. For example, they might use speech-to-text technology to help with writing tasks.
