Daniel Radcliffe: Harry Potter Helped My Dyspraxia.

DANIEL RADCLIFFE believes that the Harry Potter films have helped lessen the effects of the dyspraxia he has suffered since a young child.

"Through doing training and bits of gymnastics when I was younger on Potter, that has absolutely stood me in very good stead and has made all the dyspraxia stuff kind of decrease a lot," said Radcliffe.

Dyspraxia is a learning difficulty linked to co-ordination and balance problems. Extra physical training can help sufferers and that is effectively exactly what Radcliffe had when filming the Potter series of movies.

"The stunts and stuff has helped a lot because it deals with co-ordination and that's the main thing that I'd say about dyspraxia, is that it's to do with co-ordination," added Radcliffe.

"Some people have it very badly and find it hard to catch a ball. I've never had it quite that badly - although you should see me throw - but it's also a processing thing, so I take in information slightly slower than everyone else does."
