My son has apraxia and seems to also have some sort of oral fixation. He puts everything in his mouth. Sometimes toys, paper, chews on furniture. Mostly he chews on his shirt sleeves to the point of ruining them. It seems as if it is something he can not control, even when asked numerous times to stop. Was wondering if this is something related to his apraxia or something else, I should be concerned about. Is anyone experiencing the same problem or have any advice? Thanks, by the way my son is almost 6.
