Let me preface this by saying I'm not 100% in the believer category that Ethan has this. He has been in speech for a year after being delayed due to fluid/not hearing until 18 months of age. He had his first 3 words at 18 months, and 100 words at 2. His receptive speech is normal but his expressive is delayed. He is talking in two word phrases and is starting to put 3 word sentences together. He does have a slower time processing how to say new words and does leave the ending sounds of a lot of words still. The words and phrases he does have he says consistently. His private speech therapist is leaning towards a mild-moderate form of apraxia.
I think it's too early. His speech is constantly improving, he has tons of words. His articulation his off due to ending sounds not being said....but maybe all of these signs point to apraxia.
One more thing to add...he is extremely shy and often doesn't show to others all that he shows to DH and myself.
Anyone have any experience with apraxia? What can you tell me about it? Sound like this may be a likely diagnosis down the line?
