I'm upset because Liam used to be an entirely oral eater. And now he can't eat much by mouth at all. How do we fix that? How do you get better at swallowing than by practicing swallowing? How do we keep him from gagging? Does he just need more therapy? And if so, where do we fit that in to our already loaded schedule where medicaid is maxed to it's allowable limits?
I put in a call to his therapist who used to work on feedings with him. I'm hoping she has some good ideas of where to go from here.
