Ataxia, Dyspraxia and Apraxia

Ataxia is a symptom of a group of neurological disorders such as MS or Friedreichs ataxia, that affect balance, coordination, and speech.

See http://www.ataxia.org.uk/ for further information.

Dyspraxia is an impairment or immaturity of the organisation of movement. It is the partial loss of the ability to co-ordinate and perform skilled, purposeful movements and gestures with normal accuracy. Associated with this may be problems of language, perception and thought. Other names for dyspraxic include Clumsy Child Syndrome; Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD); Minimal Brain Dysfunction: Motor learning Difficulty; and Pereceptuo-motor Dysfunction.

Apraxia is the term that is used to describe the complete loss of this ability.
