Childhood apraxia of speech is a disorder in which children have difficulty coordinating the movements involved with speech. As a result, they have difficulty putting sounds together to form language. Although the muscles required for speech are not compromised, the planning required by the brain to complete the various movements is impaired. The child may have age-appropriate language comprehension, and may know what he/she wants to say, but is unable to perform the correct movements to create their intended message.
