Responds to Claire Wardon's comments on the relevance of the authors' goal of identifying either a single or unitary diagnostic maker for Developmental Apraxia of Speech based on error profiles or a potential phenotype marker. Difficulty in interpreting the source of Waldron's concerns; Problem with the consistency and variability in Waldron's clinical experiences; Reactions to Waldron's confusion on the study results.
