Causes of Apraxia

Acquired apraxia is caused by damage to the parts of the brain that control language functions. It may result from a stroke, a head injury, a tumor, or any illness that causes brain damage.

It is widely believed that developmental apraxia is a neurologically based speech-motor disorder, but the exact causes have not been isolated. Many children with developmental apraxia have no brain abnormalities; others may have been born with brain damage or suffered brain damage through an illness or accident.
