It's about a month from #Apraxia Awareness Day.

I have a challenge for #ActuallyAutistic people: Raise awareness of apraxia.

Why? Because apraxia is VERY COMMON among autistic people and VERY SELDOM recognised.

The behaviour of apraxic autists is often (mis)treated using ABA.
There are several types of apraxia. Apraxic autistics often call their type of apraxia "the body-mind disconnect" or the "brain-body disconnect".
This type of apraxia is different from just having problems with pronunciation or with accuracy of movement. With autistic apraxia, you may end up doing or saying a COMPLETELY different thing from what you intended.
