My son has some sensory issues. He is 6 now but we had communication issues when he was younger that resulted in speech delays. Speech therapy has fixed that. We also had issues with experiencing and handling different textures (he didn't like sticky or dirty) and he still has issues trying new foods. Even foods he knows, if it looks different he freaks sometimes. For example, he loves chicken nuggets but will get really upset if I make chicken breasts or shake n bake. He loves fish sticks and fish from fish-fry, but freaks if you give him tuna or salmon or tilapia. etc. We have issues with loud noises/certain noises that will set him off. Every day is trial and error but I'm learning new ways to desensitize all the time :)

Feel free to send me a message any time!
