“The Get Permission Approach to
Sensory Mealtime Challenges”
Presented by Marsha Dunn Klein MEd., OTR/L
“Get Permission” is an approach to mealtimes and feeding treatment based on the foundation of trust in a feeding relationship. It supports children who have sensory mealtime challenges in moving forward with mealtime goals with trust, enjoyment, and confidence. It follows the child’s lead with creative and sensitive mealtime treatment strategies. The purpose of this relationship-based workshop is to provide treatment and family support strategies for children with sensory mealtime challenges. Its focus is to help children find enjoyment and confidence in the sensory aspects of mealtimes. We look at complicated sensory challenges for children who are worried about the sensory aspects of feeding, those who have had limited or scary oral sensory experiences, those who are fed by tube, have visual impairments or are on the autism spectrum. It supports an approach of getting oral sensory permission as a foundation of trust for change. Case studies will be reviewed and discussed.
