  • Difficulty making speech movements, especially with longer or complex words and sentences
  • Mistakes in pronouncing words, including transposing, omitting, or adding sounds
  • Slow or choppy speech, with pauses and interruptions between words
  • Distortions in pronunciation, such as unusual intonations or changes in pitch
  • Difficulty speaking spontaneous, fluent, and coherent sentences

It is important to note that the symptoms of apraxia of speech can be different in each patient and may depend on the severity of the condition and other individual factors. Accurate diagnosis and individualized treatment by an experienced speech therapist are critical to reducing symptoms and improving the patient’s communication skills.

duration of treatment

The duration of treatment for apraxia of speech depends on the severity of the disease, the patient’s individual responsiveness to therapy, and other factors. Typically, however, treating apraxia of speech requires long-term and ongoing care.

Typical treatment for apraxia of speech in adults can take several months to a year or longer, depending on the patient’s individual situation. In most cases, a combination of individual and group therapy is recommended to achieve the best possible results.

In the early stages of therapy, the focus may be on improving the basics of speech movement, such as articulation of sounds and coordination of breathing and speech. Advanced stages of therapy may aim to expand language skills and improve the patient’s communication skills.

It is important to note that each case is individual and the duration of treatment for apraxia of speech may vary depending on the specific needs of the patient. Early diagnosis and ongoing collaboration with an experienced speech therapist are critical to achieving the best possible outcomes.
