Re: Need help from those with experience in severe feeding problems
We tried toothettes when he was younger and they didn't work but I will see about trying it again. They might go over better now that he is bigger.
His chronological age is 8yo, developmentally he functions on a toddler level around 18-24 months and size wise he is the size of a 4 to 5 year old (stunted growth due to genetic syndrome).
We just resumed feeding therapy last year. His biggest stumbling block before then was medical problems in the GI track; severe enough that oral feeds just were not going to be successful from a medical standpoint. He is just now medically in a place where we can try to transition to oral feeds again.
