Apraxia. Our current clinical approach to apraxia is similar to that proposed by Liepman in the early 20th century.1 He recognised that left hemispheric lesions tend to cause bilateral upper limb apraxia and suggested a model of motor control in which the left parietal lobe stores a 'space-time form picture' of a movement. For a movement to be executed, its picture must be retrieved and.

(Duffy, 2005) Dysarthria • A speech disorder with neurological bases • Characterized by paralysis, weakness or incoordination of the speech musculature (Darley, Aronson, & Brown.

Goals therefore can depend on what type of intervention the clinician is using at that point
Understanding Childhood Apraxia By Becky Spivey, M.Ed. Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) is a very specific motor speech disorder. Children with this diagnosis have difficulty planning and consistently producing sequences of speech movements using their tongue, lips, jaw, and palate.

Apraxia is a disorder in executing learned 1 or skilled movement (exclud- ing explicitly symbolic movements 2 ) not accounted for by weakness, inco- ordination, sensory loss, incomprehension or inattention to commands. 3, 4 I Keywords: apraxia of speech (CAS), speech and language disorder, teaching strategies 1. Apraxia Apraxia is an acquired disorder of motor planning, but is not caused by incoordination, sensory loss, or failure to comprehend simple commands (which can be tested by asking the person to recognize the correct movement from a series) Apraxia is a neuropsychological deficit that interrupts an individual's ability to perform purposeful movement, in the absence of basic sensorimotor difficulties such as lack of sensation or muscle weakness. Approximately 30% of individuals display apraxia or partial signs of apraxia (i.e. dyspraxia) following stroke
Acquired apraxia of speech (AOS) is a motor speech impairment caused by disruption to speech motor planning/programming centers of the brain. Although it often co-occurs with aphasia, the phonetic-motoric nature of the disorder necessitates that AOS must be treated as a moto Apraxia of speech (AOS) is an impaired ability to perform speech movements. It is differentiated from dysarthrias in that it is not due to problems in strength, speed, and coordination of the articulatory musculature. The primary behavioral characteristics of AOS are slowed speech, abnormal prosody, distortions of speech sounds such as sound.
