dc.description.abstractObjective. To assess the presence of nonverbal and verbal apraxia in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and analyze the correlation between these conditions and patient age, education, duration of disease, and PD stage, aswell as evaluate the correlation between the two types of apraxia and the frequency and types of verbal apraxic errorsmade by patients in the sample. Method.This was an observational prevalence study. The sample comprised 45 patients with PD seen at the Movement Disorders Clinic of the ClinicalHospital of Porto Alegre, Brazil. Patients were evaluated using the Speech Apraxia Assessment Protocol and PDstages were classified according to the Hoehn and Yahr scale. Results.The rate of nonverbal apraxia and verbal apraxia in the present sample was 24.4%. Verbal apraxia was significantly correlated with education (𝑝 ≤ 0.05). The most frequent types of verbal apraxic errors were omissions (70.8%).The analysis of manner and place of articulation showed that most errors occurred during the production of trill (57.7%) and dentoalveolar (92%) phonemes, consecutively. Conclusion. Patients with PD presented nonverbal and verbal apraxia and made several verbal apraxic errors. Verbal apraxia was correlated with education levels.en
