It is not for a lack of trying but she refusses to smell, tast or try nything at all, people have told me she should see an occupational tactile therapist do you think this would bennifit her? Or do you have any suggestions please.

You do not need to see a tactile therapist. Please write again and give me her age, her weight and tell me if she is ahappy child.
