* There is no connection to cognitive or linguistic comprehension problems
A neurological pediatric sound disorder in which the precision and consistency of movements underlying speech are impaired in the absence of neuromuscular deficits (e.g. abnormal reflexes, abnormal tone). It may occur as a result of known neurological impairment, in association with complex neurobehavioral disorders or as an idiopathic neurogenic speech sound disorder.
* children with CAS will have a history of being quiet, while a child with a language delay has a typical babbling history
*OT’s & PT’s would refer to motor planning difficulties as dyspraxia
* Children with apraxia have a “soft/chubby cheek” look to the face, and usually have behaviors
Touch receptors in the skin, the pressure receptors in the muscles and joints, and the vestibular or movement centers in the brain all work together to let the body know where it is in space and gives us body awareness.
