What is Apraxia?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
Apraxia is a motor disorder caused by damage to the brain (specifically the posterior parietal cortex), in which the individual has difficulty with the motor planning to perform tasks or movements when asked even though their muscles are able to function normally.
Apraxia can occur in a variety of forms including “orofacial apraxia” (unable to voluntarily perform certain movements involving facial muscles), “apraxia of speech” (difficulty or inability to move mouth and tongue to speak). Another form affects the ability to intentionally move arms and legs.
