I have 7yr old twins who both have Apraxia of Speech. Both have "graduated" from speech therapy. One of the girls is doing just fine with her reading and spelling, while the other, who has more severe Apraxia, is not doing very well. She seems to mix up d's and b's, put sounds from the end of a word at the beginning, and not be able to recognize a word that is repeated several times in the same story. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a connection between Apraxia and Dyslexia. I can't seem to find much info. By the way, her teacher kind of dismissed my question when I tried to talk to her, but she also had no idea what Apraxia was. Thanks!
