Yes its very frustrating. Especially as someone said that people guess what you mean and also knowing what you want to say when you start but then losing your train of thought and then have to think of how you want to say it and it ends up sounding very confusing and the person your talking to makes you explain it again. Story of my life. If only we could talk like we type have a back space option lol. It makes me feel dumb even though I know I am not I just cant get my thoughts out well from my brain to my mouth and even hands as I type.

While I don't have it myself...I have in all seriousness thought that Bush 43 had it (or some form of expressive language disorder).

Please don't flame--I mean this as a strictly "medical" observation (though I am NOT a doctor), not as a political comment or a like/dislike comment.

Sorry...George W. Bush, 43rd president (as opposed to his dad, George H. W. Bush, 41st president).

To anyone on here who does not know what verbal apraxia is, it is not a disorder of expressive language. It's not a language disorder at all- it's a motor speech disorder. It has nothing to do with saying the wrong word, or not being able to think of the word you want to say, or finding the right words to express yourself. It has to do purely with physically producing the actual sounds that are coming out of your mouth. People with verbal apraxia have difficulty sequencing the motor movements to produce speech sounds, so they are often highly unintelligible (at least as children). Words come out sounding garbled, and speech is often slow, with even stress. Speech errors tend to be inconsistent, and people with verbal apraxia often produce errors on vowels as well as consonants, which would be unusual with other speech disorders. You can have childhood apraxia of speech, or apraxia following a stroke or other brain injury. Children with childhood apraxia of speech (and adults with acquired apraxia) are often so highly unintelligible even with intensive speech therapy that they require alternative means of communication, such as signing, PECs, or speech output devices.

Thanks for the clarification. :)

In that case, I retract the example I brought up.

I have had it all my life I think. Which one is that? I have had lots of spech langae theripy. I also have phonologiacal awearnes difiucltys. I am not sure if that is somthign else. It might be part of my apraxia. I am not sure. Spech langage reports are difficult to understand I think.

If you post (or PM me) some terms you are not familiar with from your reports, I will try to explain what they mean. I am sorry that you are having difficulty understanding your reports- you may also want to ask your speech therapist to clarify some points with you.

Difficulty with phonological awareness is a separate thing from verbal apraxia, but childhood apraxia of speech *is* often accompanied by difficulty with phonological awareness. There are different theories as to why this is the case.
