MP Tom Hunt has today spoken about living with dyspraxia – and his fears that children living with the condition aren’t getting enough help in school.
Mr Hunt was diagnosed with dyspraxia and dyslexia when he was 12 years old, and told GB News it was his “burning passion” to make sure children with the conditions are given the educational opportunities and support they need to achieve their full potential. He said:
“I would say that I was incredibly fortunate to be in a position where I had the support that I had. I was at an independent school, and half the reason my dad fought to keep me there was because he felt I needed that additional support.
