i am looking for parents who have taken their child to the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, in their biobehavioral unit headed under Dr. David Wacker Ph.D...
My son has severe eating disoder, where when he eats he will spit out most of his food he trys to swallow. He is a binge eater, eating constantly for a couple of weeks and than the next few weeks you can hardly get him to swallow anything. All the medical work-up we have done here shows no medical reasoning for this. My son also has severe problem behaviors.
Our autism psychologist at the UAP trained under Dr. Wacker at the University of Iowa and recommended that my son be admitted for 10 to 14 days. They are going to do a full medical work-up, and after results, will implement a behavioral program in eating and behavior control with medications. This is a very intense program. I am hoping to meet some other parents who have experience with this program and willing to share their experience with this.. Thank you MC
