According to The Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA), Childhood Apraxia of Speech is a motor speech disorder. A child with Developmental Apraxia of Speech has trouble correctly producing and sequencing sounds, syllables, and words.  Generally, muscles of the face, tongue, lips, and jaw are functioning appropriately.  The problem seems to be the “motor plan” from the brain for saying a sound or word.  This means that the child may know what he or she wants to say, but they just cannot say it.  Apraxia of speech is sometimes called verbal apraxia, developmental apraxia of speech, or verbal dyspraxia.
