"Get Permission" is an approach to pediatric mealtimes and feeding treatment based on a foundation of trust in the feeding relationship. The purpose of this relationship-based workshop is to provide treatment and family support strategies for children with feeding mealtime challenges. It supports children gaining eating success based on enjoyment of the sensory and social aspects of eating, confidence in their oral skills  and internal motivation to eat enough.   It follows the child's lead with creative and sensitive mealtime treatment strategies that adjust based on each child’s response. It celebrates parents and focuses on their success. We look at the complicated Influences of giving permission in eating.  We discuss ways to support children who are worried about mealtimes, those who are fed by tube, or are on the autism spectrum. Case studies will be reviewed and discussed.
