He currently bites the food using his back left teeth and tends to keep it on that side but is using his tongue to move it back over to that side which is fantastic. We will work on getting him to chew on the other side as well but for now we are just happy he is chewing. He has been doing all of this with no gagging!!! A little drool escapes every now and then but this is a process and we have a ton of napkins. (getting him to use them is a different story) .
We meet with his speech therapist every two weeks to monitor progress and make adjustments as needed! It has been quite an adventure with years of therapy, including a 4 week intensive feeding program to get to this point! We are so proud of him!
Below is a picture of Cyler's first 'non mushy' dinner! He did AMAZING!!!
