What is Apraxia?

Apraxia of speech is the decreased ability to position lips, tongue, or vocal folds to produce sounds for speech resulting from a deficit in motor planning or programming. The speech signal from the brain is interrupted on its way to the mouth. People typically have difficulty in producing the sounds of a word, despite often knowing what they want to say.
