In the classroom, students with apraxia have unique needs. While they generally receive information well and understand instruction, they cannot effectively demonstrate what they have learned. This leads to a great deal of frustration for students.
Because apraxia affects each person differently, educators and parents should strive to find alternative ways for students to participate meaningfully in the classroom. Occupational, physical, and speech therapists working with students can provide valuable information on how to adapt instruction and classroom materials to enable students to participate and to lower their frustration levels. Some students can be assisted through adaptive technology.
