hello amel!

Amel was fifteen months old when he was first seen at TLFI for sensory processing challenges and global delays. He had recently undergone a liver transplant, and was being fed via Gastrostomy Tube (G-Tube). He required assistance to sit and keep his head up. Amel was hypersensitive to tactile sensations; refusing teeth or hair brushing, and spitting out textured foods. He was followed two hours a week for feeding and occupational therapy.

Amel started walking after five months of therapy. Both oral-sensory and oral-motor skills also progressed, and Amel graduated from his feeding program after seven months of therapy. At the time of his discharge he was taking all his nutritional needs by mouth and eating regular table food including steak, fried rice, chicken, and stir fry vegetables. A few months later, his G-Tube was removed!
