Addressing Aarskog Syndrome is vital in order for it to be recognised as a disability, ensuring all Aarskog patients have access to the same resources as any other person. We are a supportive Charity working to improve the quality of life for each individual Aarskog child and their families, helping them to fulfil their potential educationally, to give ongoing support for Aarskog children who struggle receiving vital assessments and to educate others about some of the real difficulties faced growing up with the syndrome.

Children with Dyspraxia often have:

Dyslexia: Children with dyslexia might have trouble learning to read. Dyslexia can also make it hard to write, spell and say the words you want to say.
    Dyscalculia: This causes children to have difficulties with math. Children with dyscalculia may have trouble remembering basic math facts such as 2 + 2 = 4, doing calculations and estimating quantities and times (such as how long a minute is). Dyspraxia can cause trouble with math, too. Find out how this is different from dyscalculia-related math difficulties.
    Dysgraphia: Dysgraphia causes trouble with writing. Dysgraphia and dyspraxia are very different, but they often have overlapping symptoms—like messy handwriting. Learn more about the difference between dysgraphia and dyspraxia.
    ADHD: ADHD can make it difficult for your child to keep still, concentrate, consider consequences and control impulses. About half of children with dyspraxia also have attention issues.[10]
