I contacted the Birth to Three program a couple of weeks ago becasue im concerned about my 14 month old's development. He has yet to say his first word, and has feeding issues. He cant seem to be able to figure out a hard-spouted sippy cup (the only kind he can get to work are the soft-spouted Nuby cups which you suck on like a bottle :? He also cannot eat foods like crackers, cheerios, chips, etc becasue he chokes on them.. i dont think he chews despite having 5 teeth. He still mainly eats infant cereal and jarred babyfood (the 3rd foods) because he chokes on most table food. Granted he was a preemie, but he was only 5 weeks early so I dont think thats the cause of his delays. The lady who evaluated him wants the feeding issues looked into further, so the speech therapist will be coming to evaluate him.. I'm worried, but in the same sense if there is a delay I'd rather them catch it sooner rather than later so it can be addressed and corrected. Has anyone else had similar issues with their toddlers? If so, what course of action was taken? And the outcome?
