another diagnosis

well lexi's speech therapist miss kristin believes lexi not only has apraxia but she really believes she has an articulation disorder. An articulation disorder involves problems making sounds. Sounds can be substituted, left off, added or changed. These errors may make it hard for people to understand you.
Young children often make speech errors. For instance, many young children sound like they are making a "w" sound for an "r" sound (e.g., "wabbit" for "rabbit") or may leave sounds out of words, such as "nana" for "banana." The child may have an articulation disorder if these errors continue past the expected age. i swear at the rate shes going shes gonna have more diagnosis than i can count on my hand.
