How I got diagnosed with dyspraxia

I was twelve when my parents took me to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.  A doctor named Lucius Waites diagnosed me with dyspraxia; he also diagnosed my younger brother as having a reading disorder, but it is not dyslexia.

I spent a short time in the hospital itself and took both physical and occupational therapy.  The therapies helped me to get stronger and to cope with how to do things for myself.  I would have stayed in the hospital longer, but I was too worried about my mom to do what they needed me to do; my mom was having back issues at that time.

If you want more information on Scottish Rite Hospital you can go to and learn more about the services they offer children.  It is a non-profit hospital in that you don’t pay for the services.
