Hi All DD is 6, autistic, with many other previous medical issues.
She's had ent surgery for laryngotracheamalacia, grommits x 2, adnoids and tonsils out.
Recently its come to light that she cant smell. But im also curious, thinking that she doesnt actually taste.
Is that common? Is that even possible?
How would we test that theory? (apart from what ive already tried, which is really just asking her what it smells/tastes like, exposing her to smells and gauging her reaction, which is nothing).
Very curious to find out if this is whats going on, and will she ever develop a sense of smell and or taste?
