Excellent ideas here from Lara, as always. I would add that you might consider strengthening slightly your reference to dyspraxia in applications. Not making a big deal of it, just a short paragraph, something along the lines of: I suffer from dyspraxia (as covered by the Equalities Act, 2010). I have, of course, coping strategies for this so that there is no impact on my normal teaching (as shown in my observations). However in an interview situation I may demonstrate some features; you may be already aware of the advice for employers to be found at: http://www.dyspraxiafoundation.org.uk/services/ad_employers.php This sets the situation out clearly and identifies their responsibility. But do take note of Lara's comments too. Best wishes ___________________________________________ TheoGriff. Member of the TES Careers Advice Service.
