    1. Hello, thank you for contacting me. In order to be able to understand better the reason why he is drooling or having difficulties in cognitive and executive areas, i will need or to see him or to know more details. The saliva drooling situation: try in involve him with more “chewy” food, use chewy tubes if you need, use massages in his cheeks inside and outside. Massage his face and stimulate his oral motor abilities. I have some videos in YouTube that might help you check: lisa shchyhel channel for more info.

      For reading and learning, you must to seek an Occupational Therapist in order to address this difficulties and guide you better. I could do so but I am not sure you are in Malta. Although I also offer Teletherapy services.
