The condition can occur in a number of different forms. Orofacial apraxia affects the facial movements, such as not being able to wick or lick the lips. Another form can affect the ability to move arms and legs.
Apraxia can also affect the speech making it difficult to control the mouth and tongue. There are two forms of apraxia of speech – acquired apraxia which can occur in people of all ages and childhood apraxia which is present at birth.
