My son has verbal and limb apraxia and sensory integration

Customer Question

My son has verbal and limb apraxia and sensory integration disorder.
he is four years old. his sister had sensory integration disorder and a speech delay.
my question is, when he was an infant he fell, he did not lose conciousness, there was no mark, no bump, no bruise. The next morning i took him to a doctor who said there were no signs of injury. Could this have contributed to his apraxia at all?

If he had no loss of consciousness or other neurologic signs, the fall could not be held responsible. Apraxia is a soft sign and there may not be any structural fault, only wrong connections of brain circuits.
There would be available expert teaching help to go around this defect when he is in school. Boys otherwise also are often delayed in speech compared to girls.
