My attention problem is more or less solved but the clumsiness has not gone. Does one go to an occupational therapist for such problems is what I want to ask.
I'm not familiar with the health care system where you are.
Here I had to go to my neurologist or GP to get a referral to see a physical therapist.
They helped me to improve my posture as well as my knee cap tracking.
Fixing those two things (for different reasons) help me function better daily.
BUT....in order for me to continue to function....I need to maintain an almost daily ROUTINE of exercise....especially STRETCHING for flexibility..."strengthening" to keep muscles in good health to maintain gains in form and posture...also it helps with reflexes I have found over time if done with CARDIO exercise regularly...
I imagine OT would probably tell you something similar...maybe just get yourself a personal trainer?
Or see a neurologist to rule out any neurological imbalances?
Hope that helps
