I’ve recently started working as a supporter worker for a lovely woman with Down Syndrome (she’s in her 30s). Overall, it’s going really well! However, the Mom has a concern about her eating habits around other people. She spits up her food sometimes, will burp without covering her mouth, extend mealtimes for almost an hour often because of reaching into the fridge for more leftovers and snacks to eat beyond her original meal, often standing up while eating. I’d love suggestions to help my client improve her eating habits. In particular, she insists that she can’t help spitting up food, but her Mom says she can. She also talks a lot while eating and will obsess about if she is eating well or spitting up. Thanks for any help!
