Dysphagia

Some autistics and sensitive people may have problems swallowing and therefore refuse solid foods. (This should be respected, of course!)

“Severe swallowing problems, have never learned to swallow pills.”

I’ve had swallowing problems for years on end so that anything non-liquid would cause severe pain. Now it’s better but I still eat incredibly slowly. Getting even a small meal down can literally take hours.

Some have problems chewing and tend to either swallow the food whole, or take a very long time eating.

“I absolutely did not want to eat meat. Partly because I couldn’t chew it, this went for things like oranges too.”
