If he has always been like that, and has never really eaten anything beyond what you listed, I would push for further evaluation with an OT/feeding specialist (which it sounds like you are on the right track for) or possibly even EI because he may need some sensory intervention to help him overcome his defensiveness to foods. My DS has been in feeding therapy for 2 years so if you have any questions about that, feel free to PM me!
He has pretty much always been like this. He has been doing the feeding evaluations since he was 12 months because at that point he would even touch and baby food.

The feeding specialist has me bring in a few foods that he refuses and a few that he likes. Up until his last appointment he always did well with at least trying everything I brought but then once we are home, he won't try anything. If I even carry him close to his high chair he will get real stiff and scream and cry. At his last appointment with the therapist he wouldn't touch anything we offered. She put in a request for a swallow study and that appointment is next week.

I think I am going to look into EI. How do I go about getting their info?
