Dysphasia: Dysphagia simply means abnormal swallowing and can be from any cause. If he is not able to swallow liquids or is having difficulty breathing it would be wise to be reevaluated.

Proper referral: You need to take your son to a pediatric gastroenterologist that can evaluate exactly what is wrong by special x-rays and possibly an endoscopy.
