After relating to a dyspraxia report of someone else, she asks her colleague, who is an occupational therapist, if she thinks she might be dyspraxic. The therapist said she knew right away after 30 minutes of meeting her. All the clues were visible. That shocked her. Kerry Pace was helping students with dyslexia without knowing that she has Dyspraxia, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and Sensory Processing Disorder. There were a lot of circumstances that unknowingly hid Kerry’s learning difficulty issues throughout her childhood. The clumsiness, inattentiveness, and absences at school were attributed to other factors rather than dyspraxia. She was also great at masking these signs being innovative and adaptive. With the help of these attributes, she was able to identify a problem that no one else did. In part 1 of the 3 part episode, we discover the exciting story of Kerry Pace and how she created Diverse Learners, an online tutoring service for people with dyspraxia.
