Marsha Dunn Klein is a pediatric occupational therapist who has spent an almost five decade career specializing in feeding infants and young children. She received her bachelor’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Boston University Sargent College and Masters of Education from the University of Arizona. She has co-authored Pre-feeding Skills, FIrst and Second Editions, Homemade Blended Formula Handbook and Mealtime Participation Guide with Suzanne Evans Morris and Feeding and Nutrition for the Child with Special Needs with Tracy Delaney. Her most recent book, Anxious Eaters, Anxious Mealtimes: Practical and Compassionate Strategies for Mealtime Peace was published last year.
Having sold her share in her pediatric feeding clinic, Mealtime Connections, Marsha spends her time presenting and writing and consulting, nationally, internationally, though since the pandemic, that has been by virtually and by webinar. She started and is still active in a nonprofit that supports families whose children struggle to eat. Marsha is a food celebrator and when not feeding children and supporting their families, she loves to garden, quilt, cook and dream about traveling again.
