I have a student who has dyspraxia and is 105 pounds.  He is 7 years old, and 49 inches tall. My concern is, even though he has been in physical/occupational therapy since diagnosed 2 years ago, that his obesity has not been addressed with no diet or plans to alleviate his sedetary lifestyle.  Two sugary drinks, packages of chips, oreo cookies,(4) a sandwich, and a sugary fruit cup are everyday packed lunches with his backpack loaded with all kinds of candy bars and treats. How is it that his pediatritian/therapists don't seem to understand his need for more help especially with the dyspraxia?  He asks to be wiped after toileting, have shoes tied, place straws into his drink boxes he has trouble with dexterity...
