Apraxia

Apraxia Speech Therapy for Children

From the CASANA (The Childhood Apraxia of Speech of North America) website: “Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a motor speech disorder that first becomes apparent as a young child is learning speech. For reasons not yet fully understood, children with apraxia of speech have great difficulty planning and producing the precise, highly refined and specific series of movements of the tongue, lips, jaw and palate that are necessary for intelligible speech.¬†Apraxia of speech is sometimes called verbal apraxia, developmental apraxia of speech, or verbal dyspraxia.”
