SPD Oral Defensiviness
(Louisville, KY usa)
My child has been a "picky eater", so the doctors say. He is three years old and this has been getting worse over the last 2 years. With the few things he will eat he gags and has to walk away from the food after a few bites. We no longer can eat out at restaurants. He will start gagging soon after the food is on the table. If I am not quick to notice it making him uncomfortable he will vomit. This happens 90-100% of the times we go out to eat. My doctor did have a swallow study performed on him approx. 6 months ago and it came back normal.The more I read I feel as though this is more of a sensory issues. Is anyone dealing with a child with these type of symptoms?
