Membership for existing Members is still valid, including those whose Membership expired since March 2012.

Occupational Therapists wanted and Dyspraxia Website
Hi to friends at DANDA!
I am very excited about developing my new website www.dyspraxiauk.com
I see it as a national resource for older children and adults, who have so little available to them elsewhere, except DANDA. The web site is due to go live at the end of June.
I’d appreciate your comments either direct to me email@example.com or on the web site comments pages. I hope you will ‘like’ it on your Face book pages and twitter!
Awareness is definitely growing about Dyspraxia in Universities, work places, return to work schemes, Access to Work, Care of the Elderly (Falls prevention) and mental health, as well as older children in schools who are excluded from Paediatric services.
I am an Occupational Therapist working in Kent, Sussex/Essex/London getting a regular stream of Assessments to do.
Once my web site www.dyspraxiauk.com goes live I will not be able to cope with the influx of work so need trained and skilled OT Associates throughout the UK to help me. OTs can enjoy adding to their skills with support and supervision, and earn a part time income.
The next Occupational Therapists Assessors Training is in Kent on July 11, 12, 2011 (Cost £200)
On Sept 22 2011 I am running an introductory course on Adults with Dyspraxia in Nottingham City NHS Trust for Health Professionals and members of the public.
If you need more information please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org until the web site goes live. Then use the ‘contact us’ page.
I hope you enjoy the web site and look forward to your ideas and feedback on it!
Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, asking if any young adults with ASD would like to take part in a research project:
I work at the Institute of Psychiatry on a research project funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The project is investigating service use and need of young adults with ASD, in the transitional period from childhood to adulthood.
Our project involves interviewing young people (aged 14-24) with ASD and their principle carer (usually their mum or dad) about their needs and what services they use. We also talk to the carer about the impact of caring for someone with ASD. We offer a £20 voucher to the young person for taking part.
If interested please contact: Tim Cadman, Research Assistant, Department of Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Sciences, Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London, PO23 De Crespigny Park, Denmark Hill, SE5 8AF, Tel: 0207 848 5359
