My 7yr old has SPD and has eating problem looking for suggestions
I have a 7 yr. old girl that has SPD,mixed receptive /expressive language disorder,and borderline intellectual functioning. We finally found what was wrong about a year ago but she has been taking speech therapy in school since preschool and now she is in first grade.She has taken some OT over the summer and now starting some in school plus some at local hospital.Her problem is eating at times and it started in pre school. We did have little trouble before but not like this but during the first few months of school we could only get her to eat pudding and pedia sure then she would start eating regular normal foods until grade K came around and it started again.
Same thing happens we are going through it again in first grade she would put noddles in her mouth now and spit it out say its hard but now she eats inside of pizza rolls and pedia sure and thats it .Just wondering if there is any ideas out there the Dr. thinks it might be anxiety of school causing it but is looking into it.When she was a baby she only ate deserts nothing textured or she would choke but when she was a toddler she ate fine but every now and then she would say she choked. But when school started it likes it triggers something and We didnt no if thats it the Dr. told us not sure but good possibility. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You
