My son chews the things at times but then will never swallow them. Earlier he used to eat whole banana but now he keeps the pieces in mouth but never swallows them. He is not gaining weight and already underweight. I am planning to meet to Occup. Therapist but if anybody can suggest anything, it will be of great help. Every meal is struggle for us, he does not want to eat or drink anything at all. We try to keep him starving by not giving anything but still not of much help. Eventually we give up and feed him forcibly. We know it's not proper way but we are so much frustrated at times and don't know what to do?
As such my son is very active, his mind is quite sharp as well. But when it comes to eating or drinking he is upset and then starts throwing tantrums,
How long has this been going on? If it has just been for a few weeks or less, it could be that he has a sore throat. You mentioned that he has an occupational therapist, could this be a part of his special needs?
