Re: Need help from those with experience in severe feeding problems

You might have your SLP talk to one that works with stroke victims who have forgotten how to swallow.

You might also try lolly pops. I know in the NICU, they use them to teach kiddos to coordinate the swallow. Kiddo salivates, and has to swallow at some point. DS loved them because he felt like a "big kid" with them.
