I have a 3 yr old that will be 4 in Nov. He has always had eating issues. He refuses his food and his diet is really limited. (He is receiving help for this now.) He is going to a 6 week program that is very intense with therapy to help him to expand his diet. We did this when he was a very young 2. Now we are back and I am hoping that this will help.
Anyway, we are in the program and they help with anything that needs to be looked at since it is a hospital. Well, my son is very sensitive to any changes and the way his food is offered to him. The therapist is starting to get concerned after 3 days. He will not take applesauce which he usually likes because it isn't in a bowl. Then she was asking me a couple of questions and I mentioned that he does the same thing at home. So, she wants to have a meeting next week about all the different things that he is really particular about. She also said that when we do, she wants to talk about him in general. That his behavior of being so sensitive to change of any kind is a big red flag! I didn't like that she was going there. She then said that when we talk, if there was anything else that is a red flag, that he would have to be evaluated by a developmental specialist.
I am going crazy thinking what this could mean for my son. She said that we want to make sure that he has all the support that he will need. Am I over reacting, or should I just relax and see what actually happens?
