I am trying to understand whether it would be a medical or psychological determination to determine whether or not I’ve officially got dyspraxia/developmental coordination disorder. I don’t typically have issues with fine-motor (with the exception of my intermittent motor flubs; I can generally use tools and tie my shoe-laces), but gross-motor especially when it comes to tasks requiring real coordination/multi-tasking (e.g. sports, or driving a car/riding a bike) I’ve definitely got difficulty with. It keeps coming up because I certainly identify with much of dyspraxia/DCD, and given that not everyone understands that autism itself can come with multitasking and motor issues, I wonder if I’ve enough overlap with dyspraxia/DCD features to warrant looking at a separate diagnosis of that, in which case I need to know whether that’s a behavioral health diagnosis or a medical diagnosis.
