Looking for Pediatric Feeding Specialist
Hi BPN! I'm looking for a recommendation for a feeding specialist to help my 18 month old overcome a phobia of eating solid foods. His phobia stems from a couple of bad swallowing and spitting up incidents when he was 6 months old and just trying out solids. We're looking for someone who makes home visits (we tried an Occupational Therapist at UCSF Children's Hospital but the clinical setting did not help my son relax).
I'm not looking for tips to try, so please don't offer any, believe me we've done them all and it's often discouraging when people try to help in that way. I'm also not looking for any diagnoses suggestions, his pediatrician is on top of this and my son has no physiological issues.
I'm would greatly appreciate recs for a professional who can help us in our home. We live in the Oakland Hills.
