Apraxia and Dyspraxia

Apraxia of speech (also known as verbal dyspraxia) is one of a group of interrelated disorders under the umbrella category of dyspraxia. This chart shows how dyspraxia can affect various motor functions as well as the processing of information by the brain and thus impact children in an educational setting.

I want to show this graph to every teacher, every speech-language pathologist, and every occupational therapist in every school in the country. I can’t do that, but I can show it to Anna’s teacher, SLP, and OT. And I can share it in as many places as possible.
