My 21 month old son has a problem eating solid food. The only thing he eats is pureed food.That is the main purpose of us going to a speech and swallow therapist.
A little background on my family. My wife of almost 9 years is schizophrenic. She has her paranoid episodes at least twice a week. Anyone familiar with them will know about it. Trust me it requires a ton of patience and strength to deal with it.
Back to my son now. He is my life. He seldom maintains an eye contact with anyone. Just a fleeting glance. He eats only pureed food and that too with certain kind of music which he likes.
He does not utter a word. He does not like toys much. He has not started pointing fingers at things he wants. When you call his name he ignores most of the times. When we take him to doctors visit he cries thru and thru.
Besides this he seems to be a happy child. He never cries when we bathe him. He is sharp,observant and alert. The speech therapist thinks its a sensory disorder and wants us to evaluate him by occupational therapist and pediatric neurologist.That has scared both my wife and me.
Any input folks?
