Hypotonic Cerebral Palsy, Apraxia (see below), mild auspergers.
Often when people speak of apraxia, it addresses just oral apraxia — however it can and often does affect more neurological areas, and its symptomatic degree depends on its severity.
Apraxia is a neurological disorder characterized by loss of the ability to execute or carry out skilled movements and gestures, despite having the desire to perform them. It includes inability to carry out some facial movements (including speech) on (self) command and on demand, such as licking lips, whistling, coughing, winking, difficulty in sequencing speech sounds, syllables, words and phrases and the volitional (the act of willing, or choosing, or resolving) movements for speech, are all impaired. It includes weakened or diminished ideo-motor ability to make proper movement in response to a verbal command and the inability to coordinate activities with multiple, sequential movements such as dressing, eating and bathing, includes low-tone and difficulty with buttons, etc. It involves limb-kinetic difficulties, which is the inability to make fine, precise movements with an arm or leg, making it also difficult to copy, draw or construct simple or complex figures. Oculomotor function is also often poor or inadequate, moving the eyes on command. Cognitive motor is weakened, leading to difficulties with motor-planning, sequencing, motor-processing, visual spatial orientation, sensorimotor control, mid-line and tasks that differ in movement complexity. Apraxia disability symptoms contributes to delays in speech, literacy, social emotional development, sensory input, gross and fine motor skills.
