Post Conference Workshop
Marsha Dunn Klein: “Overview and Advanced Topics of the Get Permission Approach to Pediatric Feeding”
“Get Permission” is an approach to mealtimes and feeding treatment which is based on the foundation of trust in a feeding relationship. It supports children who have mealtime challenges in moving forward with mealtime goals of trust, enjoyment and confidence. It follows the child’s lead with many practical, creative and sensitive mealtime and treatment strategies.
Highlights include texture transitions, tube transitions, bridging from trusted foods and utensils to new, and treatment strategies that focus on parent success and child enjoyment and trust.
This workshop is presented to feeding therapists and parents who know children who have medical mealtime challenges. Issues of such as tube feeding, gastroesophageal reflux, allergies and sensitive texture transitions will be the focus. Advanced case studies will be discussed which include complex challenges and factors that affect a child’s return to oral eating.
(Issues specific to autism spectrum will be presented in the conference session on Anxious Eaters, Anxious Mealtimes.)
