Written by a teenager with dyspraxia, this is a humorous and inspiring practical guide for young adults with dyspraxia and those around them trying to get to grips with the physical, social and psychological chaos caused by developmental co-ordination disorders (DCDs).

In her own conversational style, Victoria Biggs explains the primary effects of dyspraxia – disorganization, clumsiness and poor short-term memory – as well as other difficulties that dyspraxic teenagers encounter, such as bullying and low self-esteem. Peppered with personal stories from other teens, this award-winning book offers down-to-earth advice on a wide range of adolescent issues, from puberty, health and hygiene to family life and making friends. The new edition includes an update from the author on her university and work experiences and how dyspraxia affects her now as an adult. Her positive approach and profound empathy with others in her situation make this book a must-read.



Foreword. 1. A Recipe for Chaos. 2. The Hidden People at Home. 3. A Survival Guide to School. 4. Making the Grade. 5. Crossing the Chasm. 6. The Case of the Cooked Tomato. 7. Bullying. 8. Coping with Growing Up. 9. Understanding Your Diagnosis. 10. Dealing with Dyspraxia: What Can I Do Now? 11. Lying Diagonally in a Parallel Universe. Afterword: A Note from Now. Acknowledgements.

Caged in Chaos is a truly inspiring but humorous book written by a teenager which is aimed at helping other teenagers with dyspraxia. It is a true survivor’s guide to how to succeed and follow your dreams regardless of the things which hold you back. I would recommend this book to all young people regardless of their backgrounds. Victoria is a great role model and bravely writes about subjects which most teenagers would keep silent about such as how to deal with periods, first romantic crushes and wardrobe malfunctions. It should be essential reading in all secondary school libraries.
