It is very nice to meet you rhonda. My name is Meredith and I have a 4 yr old daughter with del- meth+ AS. My daughter started eating other things besides baby food at about 15 months (but she never had feeding issues) and could finger feed herself at 20 months and used fork at 3 she still can not use a spoon very well as all the food falls off it. I know that the feeding issue varies greatly between angels depending on if they had feeding issues as infant. I think it is wonderful that you are fostering this little man and that you are looking to gain information about him. There is also a Angelman forum where you can get LOTS of info and talk to MANY parents. This site can be kind of dead sometimes. If you want to check it out it is http://angelmanforum.org/
