My son is 22 mnths old and is just starting to take 3 to4steps, he has to be hand fed only slightly textured foods. He will not hold a spoon or for that matter put anything including toys in mouth. He does allow me to brush his teeth . Also he only babbles and says no words , his hearing is fine and he has OT and physical therapy he is also waves flaps hands up and down rapidly. I feel he does to a point understand my commands or requests to play such as ,lets play ball. He does not mind mixed foods and likes basically everything. Im feeling hopeless that he will never eat solids especially using his own hands.
