The Get Permission Approach

The Get Permission Approach is a collection of evidence-based strategies to lovingly support children who have feeding challenges and their families. It was developed by Marsha Dunn Klein, OTR/L, M.Ed., FAOTA. It is based on solid principles of normal development, research, and almost 50 years of clinical experience using a responsive, trust and relationship-based approach to assessment and treatment of pediatric feeding disorder. Read more about Marsha's approach in her new book, Anxious Eaters, Anxious Mealtimes: Practical and Compassionate Strategies for Mealtime Peace.
