I never in a million years would have ever guessed my son would have an eating issue, but he does. Gabe has autism (high functioning) and with that apraxia of speech (mild), sensory issues, and processing delays.
Gabe has always been an oral seeker. He puts everything....and I mean everything in his mouth. He has licked my windows, the floor, and even the cat! But as of the beginning of July he has become the opposite. He has developed a severe oral aversion to all food except yogurt, pediasure, chocolate milk, and if I am lucky...a few bites of ice cream.
Gabe currently get an hour a week of OT, but we are planning on increasing this for him. Have there been any specific therapies that have worked for your kiddos? The OT wants to start the brushing program with Gabe. I am willing to try anything.
