The Get Permission Institute is the original home for Marsha Dunn Klein’s Get Permission Approach—a responsive, sensitive, and evidence-based approach to supporting children with feeding challenges.


Feeding Challenges Aren't Simple Solves

From picky eaters to weaning from feeding tubes, pediatric feeding therapy demands careful attention to a spectrum of complex factors across motivation, nutrition, sensory processing, and family dynamics.

Occupational Therapists (OT), Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP), Registered Dieticians (RD), & other feeding professionals need more than tactics and checklists. We need a comprehensive, dynamic, evidence-based framework that leads to true mealtime success.


Built for professionals to lovingly support children and their families

Formed across 50+ years of clinical experience, decades of clinical research, and rooted in child development foundations, the Get Permission Approach is the responsive, sensitive, and evidence-based strategic framework to supporting children with feeding challenges.
