The 19-year-old, played by Tosin Cole, is seen discussing on his YouTube channel the difficulties he faces day-to-day with the learning disability, such as still not being able to ride a bike.
His disability causes him to lash out in anger, and he admits that he thinks his nan won’t be ‘proud’ of him without him achieving the small things.
Dyspraxia is a developmental co-ordination disorder, meaning that those who have it often move more clumsily than expected in people their age, and find it difficult to learn skills that require co-ordination.
