Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on how to get my 3 year old Non-verbal Autistic son to chew food? We are noticing he prefers to swallow food whole (as we noticed with pasta tonight). Because of the sensory issues we are having difficulty getting him to chew or even slow down when eating food. He does not use cuttlery yet ( we cut everything up so he can use his fingers but when a spoon or folk is required we feed him ourselves).
