It’s just not fair. This shouldn’t be happening.
Worried. Frustrated. Angry.
Having trouble with communication or eating is the worst.
The toll on emotional well-being, relationships, and overall health can’t be understated.
Being unable to communicate is beyond frustrating.
It’s the foundation for social connection. Everyone else gets to do it without thinking.
Instead, when there’s a communication challenge, there’s misunderstanding, judgment, and isolation.
Experiencing problems with eating is just plain cruel.
Eating should be easy and enjoyable. It should be such a simple thing.
Instead there are nutritional challenges, emotional struggles, and social pain.
You’ve done what you can.
Well-meaning friends, doctors, teachers, and family members have given advice. Some of it has been helpful; some hasn’t.
Dr. Google and Professor Facebook have helped a bit, but mostly muddied the water.
The judgment heaped on you by others (and yourself) isn’t helping either.
It’s time to let an expert take the lead.
You’re in the right place.
Speech and feeding therapy can help.
Being able to communicate effectively and to eat safely and efficiently have
huge impacts on physical health, emotional well-being, and social connection.
