No, unfortunately, I study Linguistics, which mean I'll probably end up being a high school English teacher, which is no bad thing, unless I have to teach me. Or somebody like me.

ahhh... you wish to be a writer then, eh? Spot on! I was inquiring because I looked up dyspraxia in the online Merriam-Webster dictionary. It wasn't there. I thought: he's yanking my chain? THEN I looked at an online medical dictionary! And I thought: here is a champion of the frail and weak, those who would still be cast aside as 'retarded' and hence, unworthy of life, or of living it -- in other words incapable of learning at all. Yet this is not true.
So. It takes a great deal of patience and compassion to pursue helping those whom the rest of society deems worthless. I believe in Mother Teresa's original vision she was told to: "help the poorest of the poor, the sickest of the sick". I'm not comparing you, just giving you (hopefully) inpiration. And with you we could add: the weakest of the weak i.e. those with learning disabilities...
I admire this quality. Humanitarianism, I mean. For this reason I am ALL FOR genetic engineering and stem-cell research. In this day and age NO ONE! should have to be born
with missing appendages, or, with additional ones. Everyone should be able to have vision and hearing. No one should be born with birth defects -- there's no need for it anymore! Everyone should have the same potential for growth -- life's tough enough, you know? Without the added and UNECESSARY challenge of a body or mind born with even the smallest of defects. Why? And to what purpose? Strong bodies for everyone! Amen.
