Do you have specialists in Apraxia?

Yes, we use the latest techniques for treatment of apraxia of speech. Sonali is also P.R.O.M.P.T. trained. Apraxia of speech remains a controversial diagnosis, particularly among young children. This is perhaps because for many children with childhood apraxia of speech or developmental apraxia of speech, there may be concomitant language delays. In addition, many Apraxia tests require higher level speech skills, making the tests irrelevant for very young children with limited speech. Therefore, we use our clinical experience and observations to diagnose suspected apraxia of speech. It is not uncommon to use strategies and techniques that are developed for childhood apraxia to assess if the child responds positively. Notable improvement in speech skills with the use of these strategies may provide further evidence of the presence of motor planning difficulties.
