Speech & Motor Oral Skills

Image by Adrian Swancar

Apraxia therapy is specifically designed to address apraxia of speech, a motor speech disorder where individuals have difficulty planning and executing the movements required for speech. Therapy begins with a thorough assessment by a speech-language pathologist (SLP) to identify the specific challenges faced by the individual. Based on this assessment, a customized treatment plan is developed.

The therapy emphasizes repetitive practice and the gradual progression from simple to complex speech tasks. Techniques used may include phonetic placement, tactile and visual cues, and the use of rhythm and pacing strategies to improve speech fluency. The SLP may also use technology, such as speech-generating devices, to assist in communication. Throughout the process, the focus is on helping the individual achieve consistent and accurate speech production through intensive and systematic practice.
