SPD?? perhaps Oral sensitivities? Advice greatly appreciated
I have a 18month old boy - who suffered with glue ear from about 6 months, had grommets inserted at 12 months and was told would take a while for his babbling/words to catch up.
Well he is 18 months now - still no babbling, finger pointing, waving bye bye, no talking or communication but is interactive and excellent eye contact.
He likes to rub his or my hair, shakes his head from side to side as if saying no (only sometimes), flaps his fingers (only sometimes), is not walking unaided, is cruising furniture, but when we try to get him pushing a walkie toy or to walk between us he get very upset.
Finally I find that he loves smooth pureed foods and on the other hand loves lumpy like sausages and chips, waffles, fruit (all types) etc.... but absolutely has a complete meltdown if I try to give him mashed food like potato mashed with veg and meat or spag bol - like he cant' cope with the two textures mixed and by meltdown I mean screaming crying, tears like we are torturing him.
Does he sound like he has SPD???????
