Good luck mama! An autism diagnosis should open the door for OT, which you could spend part of the sessions doing feeding therapy, and part doing other therapies.

New diagnoses are scary, but they are just a label. At the end of the day, he's still the same kid he was before the label. My son has a ton of labels, and I have to literally remind myself that 6 months ago, he didn't have any of them, and he was just Ledger. The label shouldn't change how I feel about him. I struggle with that sometimes, though.

Also, an autism diagnosis may lead to him being able to qualify for disability medicaid, which would cover your therapy.
