What is Apraxia?
- Apraxia is a neurological disorder that can disable or limit the motor function of an
individual even though the muscles are healthy. Apraxia can present itself in many ways,
one form is oral apraxia. This can effect one's speech or ability to perform certain tasks
such as eating or pronounciation. We offer orofacial myology services to improve speech,
eating & appearance.
Christina's approach is a unique combination of orofacial myology and sensory integration therapies to enable clients to speak better, eat better and have functioning relationships.
