I saw this community and noticed that one of the items of interest is apraxia.  My son's new speech therapist believes he has childhood apraxia of speech.  He is 2 1/2 years old; he can say about a dozen words clearly, and he can say most of the consonant sounds and all of the vowel sounds clearly in isolation.  He talks in the back of his throat most of the time with everything a glottal stop of g--the family and close friends can understand him sometimes, and it is clear that he is talking in complete sentences.  He understands a lot more than he can communicate as he can follow very long directions.  Oh, he isn't a late speaker in that he started talking at 9 months, but he started lagging at 18 months.  He also doesn't have any developmental lags outside of talking.

At any rate, I just wanted to say hi and hear what other people are going through, so I'll have an idea of what my son may experience in his speech therapy.
