                             Apraxia of Speech

Apraxia of Speech is a motor speech disorder.  Children with apraxia of speech have difficulty with motor planning.  For them, producing the precise, highly refined series of movements of the lips, tongue, jaw, and palate that are necessary for intelligible speech is very difficult.  Apraxia of speech has many names and is often called verbal apraxia, developmental apraxia of speech, or verbal dyspraxia.  

Apraxia's motor impairment makes a child's speech unintelligible.  For each sound we make, there are a specific sequence of steps our brains and articulators have to make, in order and in perfect timing, to produce the sound.  For those with apraxia, these steps do not happen in order due to issues with motor planning and timing.  It is like following a path from one point to another, but you cannot quite finish each step correctly.  Apraxia of speech requires specialized diagnosis and intervention from a qualified Speech-Language Pathologist.  Please view our contact information here to set up an appointment or to request additional information.
