The 'Get Permission' Approach to Mealtimes & Oral Motor Treatment
Video by Marsha Dunn Klein, MEd, OTR/L.
The "Get Permission" approach outlines a treatment method based on the principles of healthy, trusting feeding relationships. Oral motor skills & mealtime treatment is most successful when the adults set goals, and follow the child's pace. It focuses on reading the child's cues and moving forward as the child "gives permission." Created as a teaching tape for therapists interested in feeding and oral motor treatment, this video will be helpful for any teaching setting for feeding and oral motor therapists. 17 Min.
