Yes, there's a terrific book entitled, "The LCP Solution" by B. Jacqueline Stordy. She reports on the studies done in universities in 3 or 4 different countries in which they looked at LCPs which is short for "Long-Chain-Polyunsaturated something". These LCPs are also known as Omega-3 fatty acids. They found that dyspraxia is caused by a deficiency of these LCPs and the person can also have ADD, eczema, visual acuity problems, and asthma. It's a very important book and Barnes & Noble usually has it. Good luck!

Capri - Have you read "The LCP Solution" yet? It has good info about studies done on dyspraxia and its relation to ADD. The author, B. Jacqueline Stordy, explains some of the research at various universities around the world, using Omega-3 fatty acids. They found a strong connection between a deficiency of these fats and dyspraxia (or apraxia), dry skin, asthma, visual acuity problems, and ADD. Linda
