mom2jjka Posted February 6, 2012 Share Posted February 6, 2012 My DD(age 9) has a diagnosis of apraxia, but I have always suspected something else...I just don't know what. She has many similarities to CP, but her MRI did not indicate that was the case. She goes through periods of regression, and during this time her speech and motor skills are affected - (Her tremor worsens, she gets extremely clumsy and is prone to injury, she reverts to toe walking, very difficult to understand, extremely emotional.) Not only that, but her other skills seem to come to a stand-still during these times. Schoolwork is more difficult, she has trouble sleeping, and she gets extremely emotional. She has had a full neuro work-up, but the doctors are stumped as to what could be causing the regressions. Do any of your kids with apraxia (or other disorders) go through similar regressions? I want so badly to know what is causing this. :( Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
