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 http://www.tsrhc.com and learn more about the services they offer children.  It is a non-profit hospital in that you don’t pay for the services.
