Yes! No way! Maybe?? The opinions of professionals about a speech disorder that has a multitude of names and many descriptions are strongly held. Apraxia involving the developing speech system was first described in the literature 100 years ago (Hadden, 1891) and is centered in controversy today.
My colleague, Donald A. Robin, has presented a view of the disorder that embraces the existence of, and a motor-control basis for, the disorder. We agree on many points and differ on others. Although on most issues we arrive at the same conclusions, the routes that we have taken to those conclusions have been different. On other issues, we are not at consensus.
