We are really having a hard time finding someone who can diagnose Apraxia of Speech. We are going to see a neuropsychologist very soon for an autism spectrum disorder assessment (initial appt). They can also dianose other developmental delays so I was wondering if they could also diagnose Apraxia? Does anyone know the answer to this?
I do not know about that. But our son was initially diagnosed as Apraxia (not sure if it was EI or through Speech-Language Eval from insurance)...
I would highly recommend checking out some parenting forums on speech apraxia, as they might be able to give you a better answer.
