'Clinicians wishing to base their assessment on sound, empirically and theoretically based principles are soon daunted by the diverse, poorly integrated and sometimes contradictory nature of apraxia research' (Tate and McDonald 1995). This paper attempts to identify some of the common ground in research and, by using this along with clinical experience, identifies guidelines for occupational therapists working with adults who have acquired dyspraxia.

Much of the neuropsychological literature refers to the term 'apraxia'; however, many occupational therapists use the term 'dyspraxia' and it is therefore the term of choice in this paper. Literature searches should make use of both terms.
