I've learned that with dyspraxia, you can't assume anything because unfortunately, it will pop up in the unlikeliest of places, such as music class or in Socials when the class is mapping Europe. There have been times where I even assumed that Jake would find something hard (like calligraphy, hello?) but to my surprise Jake not only found it fun, but was amazingly good at it.
So I bought him some adapted materials to use-larger pins with knobby ends, an easier to grip stitch ripper, and waited, hoping that Textiles would be one of those courses. You know what I mean, right? The one that he finds isn't so bad and kind of likes. The other boys this age all roll their eyes and remind us of their narrow view that sewing is for girls or gay men, but that doesn't faze Jake. He's always had interests that other kids find weird so that's nothing new anyway.
