The Professionals Membership
with Get Permission Institute
The most experienced learning community for professionals treating pediatric feeding disorder
Add 52 Years of Experience To Your Practice
Our community was founded by Marsha Dunn Klein—whose remarkable career laid the foundations for trust-based, sensitive, and responsive feeding & mealtime peace approaches used by feeding therapists worldwide.
Co-Founders Karen Dilfer & Stephanie Cohen have built on Marsha’s legacy, mentoring younger therapists and leading evidence-based innovation in the SLP and OT communities.
Including our professional community and contributors, we are a ready boost to your career and practice with unparalleled decades of experience.
Find Your Community
Join hundreds of Occupational Therapists (OT), Speech & Language Pathologists (SLP), registered dieticians (RD), early intervention providers and more who know exactly how complicated feeding therapy can be.
"Responsive, Rooted, & Supportive" Isn't Just For Kids
Success isn’t just about professional knowledge—sometimes it’s about compassion and encouragement as we do this challenging work.
Our online community includes channels for both content Q & A and relational connection.
Resources For Both New & Experienced Practitioners
Even therapists with more than 10 years of experience will find the Get Permission community engaging. We keep up with newly emerging research and discuss the implications for treatment.
Many GPI educational experiences may qualify for continuing education opportunities based on the professional standards in your relevant field.
