Hi All, Adam is 25 months old and is a level4 spastic quad with CP. I am at my wits end with his biting/sucking. He has severe left brain damage and cant walk or sit unaided. he doesnt speak. he is very alert and into his surroundings. and overall is a very happy relaxed kid.

he starts of sucking his hand and then will have a small spasm and bite himself. i have to watch him all the time and keep his hand away from his mouth. i have put lemon juice and vinegar on to see if he reacts to the taste but it had no affect at all. i have it strapped at the moment because it was open and very red and i was concerned about infection.

has anyone else had something similiar? and advice on what to do?
