Apraxia of speech is a motor speech disorder. It causes difficulty speaking, not due to muscle weakness, but due to a breakdown in the brain's coordination of muscle movements. The person knows what he wants to say, but his brain has trouble planning voluntary movements of the lips, tongue, and other speech muscles in order to produce sounds or words.More on Apraxia of Speech
