Apraxia of Speech is a motor speech disorder that makes it hard to speak (ASHA.org). Working with a speech-language pathologist learning how to say sounds and words better supports students with Apraxia. The broader umbrella of dyspraxia is characterized by difficulties coordinating one’s physical actions. Apraxia of speech/dyspraxia does not impact intelligence; most people with apraxia of speech/dyspraxia have average to above average intelligence.
Here are ways to support students with Apraxia:
