MEET THE STAFF:

Shira Sliffman, MS, OTR/L

I have been working as a pediatric occupational therapist within Montgomery Country for the last 14 years. Working within a group practice fits my comprehensive approach to working with picky eaters as nutrition is a key component of client success. The role of an occupational therapist within this area aligns with my own beliefs that eating is a complex process which includes oral motor skills, sensory challenges, and body awareness. An occupational therapist can work with you to gain new skills within these domains so eating becomes a more natural skill within your daily life.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Occupational Science and my Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy from Ithaca College. My interest in feeding and eating therapies began when I was a fieldwork student at the HSC Pediatric Center. Since graduating, I have enjoyed working for Montgomery County Public Schools with preschool and school-aged students as well as with Better Speech Associates in early intervention. As I began specializing in working with feeding disorders and picky eaters, I have trained in several programs including SOS Approach to Feeding, Mealtime Miseries, and Beckman Oral Motor.
