I have an 11 year old boy who is gonna be 12 soon and he has dyspraxya. I was wondering if you could help me to sort out something for him and his friends to do on his birthday.

Can he play videogames if he is sitting well-supported? What does he enjoy? Table games, scavenger hunts where they have to solve puzzles can be done indoors and/or out. You could have movies and pizza. Bowling alleys have many accomodations they can make, including gutter guards and ramps for rolling the bowling balls down. Unless it is a surprise, ask him what he thinks would be fun. If it is a surprise, ask his friends for suggestions. Good luck!
Does your son's school have a speech-language pathologist? If so, consult her. She's studied dyspraxia, knows what is popular in school for kids his age, and might have an inside line on what he and his friends can do together that wouldn't be too difficult for him. There's nothing worse than being sidelined watching others have all the fun. She'd also be able to consult with his teacher, and together, they might have picked up on some things he's failed to mention to you that are going on or that kids in your area are wanting to do.
