A central issue in studies on developmental speech disorders, especially with regard to childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) and phonological disorder (PD) is the distinction between phonological and motoric processes. Acoustic studies suggest that children with CAS produce incorrect realizations of correctly selected phonemes, whereas the opposite is postulated for children with PD. Thus conceived, the underlying impairment is located at different levels of speech production in these two groups of children.
