Raising public awareness about dyspraxia
Ana Maria, I am thinking about graduate school. I don't want to pursue grad school unless I know what I want to do. I would want to pursue a masters in special education or social work. Trying to find a job in the economy is difficult but it is harder if you have a speech impediment. I also have worked in a lot of different things. I have a job that only comes once a year where I utilize my thinking skills. The job I have at Pearson is only for a few months & you need to have a college degree. I write a lot btw & I am trying to publish my work. I went Bureau of Vocational Rehab for help years ago. My counselor, vendor & job coaches were a major waste. One job coach tried to get me into jobs in which I was not cut out for. People in this country does understand dyspraxia. People need to become more aware otherwise people like me will be often unemployed or underemployed in jobs we may not be suited to do.

Raising public awareness about dyspraxia
People need to know more about this condition. I know I puzzle people. I have a college degree, but I have problems with articulating words and driving is not a good idea. Last night I was telling about how I was thinking about possibly grad school. It hurt me that one girl who was at this gathering thought I should go to a community college. My interests might be more grad school. I attempted substitute teaching a while back and one of the teachers could I had the qualifications to be a substitute teacher which I do in Columbus.
