Mary Kay Lofurno: Hello, this is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director here at SyberWorks. Welcome to the 92nd episode of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast series. Last week, Dave Powell talked about problem based learning. This week, Dave defines “apraxia.” So I ask you, do you know your e-learning lingo?

Mary Kay: Hi, Dave. So what is apraxia?

Dave Powell: Apraxia is a severe disorder that is characterized by either the inability to speak or the struggle to speak clearly. This condition can occur when the muscles of the mouth cannot obey commands sent from the brain or when the brain is unable to send those commands.

Mary Kay: Is there any known cure for this illness Dave?

Dave: There is currently no cure for apraxia, but the disorder can be controlled though physical, occupational and speech therapy.

Mary Kay: OK, great. Thanks for coming Dave. Have a great day.

Dave: You too, talk with you soon!

Mary Kay: This is Mary Kay Lofurno, Marketing Director at SyberWorks. Thanks for listening to episode 92 of the e-Learning Lingo Podcast. This week, Dave talked about apraxia. The episode 92 podcast audio and transcript will be posted on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast blog.

Next time on the e-Learning Lingo Podcast, we will talk about a term used in e-learning development. Until that time, have a great week.
