CONCLUSION: the present literature about childhood speech apraxia indicates an inclination among the researches that may motivate a mixed therapeutic broaching, in which one contemplates not only aspects pertinent to language processing in a phonological representational level, but alslo aspects related to motor programming and pre-articulatory sequencing of speech itself.
