being said, the better the prognosis for improvement with stimulation. !erefore,
if you find that the PCD is not able to imitate vowels (a, e, i, o, oo), consonants
(p, b, m, w, s, t, d, n, l, sh, f, v, th, etc.), consonant-vowel combinations (bay,
be, bye, boh, boo, may, me, my, mow, moo), or single words (hi, bye, yes, no,
now, water, me, you), they may have a problem referred to as either acquired or
developmental apraxia of speech. An acquired apraxia of speech can affect a person
at any age, although it most typically occurs in adults. It is caused by damage to
the parts of the brain that are involved in speaking, resulting in an impairment
of speech. It may occur as the result of a stroke, head injury, tumor, or other
illness affecting the brain. An acquired apraxia of speech may occur together
with muscle weakness, affecting speech production (such as articulation errors
and dysarthria). Concurrent language difficulties such as aphasia may also occur
due to central nervous system damage. !e individual with apraxia of speech
has marked difficulty voluntarily moving the speech structures. We will not be
covering therapy methods for profound apraxia of speech in this text since it
requires instruction and familiarity with the sounds of speech or phonetics. !is
text is more concerned with the formulation of intelligible speech and language with
those who can generally articulate the sounds of speech. !e author has plans for a
follow-up text which will address apraxia of speech and how to help those who
have difficulty saying speech sounds.
