Do I suffer from coordination problems

Could someone please explain how un-coordination affects a person with dyslexia, I am severely dyslexic and I have quite a few problems where my brain just doesn't seem to work as fast as other peoples leading to a few problems.

It is common to have more than one condition so maybe you also have Dyspraxia>

It's is most likely you have dyspraxia as well as its closly related to dislexia its called an associated condition I also have the same problem as you

I am the same, I am slower than evryone else, I have poor coordination, and my brain wont seem to let me do anything at a fast pace. it is very frustrating. I believe it is to do with my dyslexia.

Maybe it is Dyspraxia, it had occurred to me but didn't think the symptoms were severe enough but I suppose like Dyslexia there are many levels affecting people in different ways.

This website gives some helpful insight into Dyspraxic difficulties: dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/... - like people are saying it often co-occurs with Dyslexia. I hope this information is helpful to you, many of my students who are Dyslexic also have difficulties with fine motor control particularly handwriting.
