Apraxia is a motor speech disorder that impairs the brain's ability to plan the movements of the lips, jaw, and tongue needed for speech production.
Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder. The musculature of the mouth, face, and respiratory system may become weak due to a variety of medically-related causes. The type and severity of dysarthria depend upon the etiology of the disorder (ie. stroke, Parkinson's, ALS, etc).
Cognitive-Communication disorders disrupt attention, memory, organization, problem solving/reasoning, and executive functions which may be due to dementia, traumatic brain injury, brain tumor, and other medical conditions.
Difficulty swallowing is called dysphagia. Dysphagia can occur during any phase of swallowing.
