Story of a pediatric feeding disorder

Our son was diagnosed with and treated for a pediatric feeding disorder.  As a two year old he could not chew.  He could only eat pureed baby food.  Any type of texture caused him to gag and throw up.  Pediatric feeding disorders are not well understood and frequently left untreated.  We hope other parents can learn from our experience.
