How might Dyspraxia affect work?


Dyspraxia is a learning difference that affects how the mind processes actions, usually affecting coordination and movement.

People with dyspraxia may have difficulty with motor skills, coordination, movement, and balance. For this reason, it can be difficult for people with dyspraxia to quickly follow instructions and process their thoughts. This can affect their performance in traditional job interviews, application processes, and performing tasks which require fine motor skills.

However, each person with dyspraxia has their own unique talents which can include leadership skills such as empathy and active listening, dynamic problem solving skills, and strategic thinking. Dyspraxia does not affect a person’s intelligence.

At Exceptional Individuals, we work with employers and dyspraxic candidates to match the right people to the right roles and organisations. We have a database of candidates with dyspraxia who have uploaded their CV and interest in securing a job. We then help to create a match with employers from well-known companies by inviting our candidates to apply to jobs which suit their skill set.

If the candidate is successful in securing a job with one of our partner organisations, Exceptional Individuals provides support for employee needs through coaching sessions and by advising on the necessary tools to utilise their unique skills. We will also advise employers on any suitable provision they can put in place to support their employee to succeed in their new role.


What is the best job for someone with Dyspraxia?


When undertaking work that capitalises on strengths and reasonable adjustments being implemented, individuals with dyspraxia are capable of succeeding and can provide exceptional value to organisations.

There isn’t a one size fits all career for every person with dyspraxia, it depends on the individual’s interests and talents. Though there are careers that utilise the assets of dyspraxia, such as empathy, and leadership, more than others. These jobs include teaching, coaching, leadership, creative arts and business development, amongst other things.


How do people with Dyspraxia think?


Dyspraxia is a learning difference which affects coordination, movement, balance, and organisation abilities. Motor difficulties include poor hand to eye coordination and spatial awareness, which can make it difficult for people with dyspraxia to carry out everyday functions such as driving and following instructions.

People with dyspraxia are often extremely motivated, compassionate, and creative as they’ve had to persevere to break down barriers all their lives. They are often strategic thinkers who have had to approach concepts and problems with new innovative ideas.

Dyspraxia does not affect a person’s IQ, but they may often have to navigate a mind which can be unorganized, meaning they are usually very intelligent people and are great at coming up with different approaches to situations. At work, dyspraxic people create unique ways to help themselves and others learn, which means they are great at alternative and innovative problem solving.
