Becky Miksic, OTR/L, T-NLP, T-TET, CHt

I am a pediatric occupational therapist who is certified through the National Board of Occupational Therapy and licensed by the California Board of Occupational Therapy.  I came to San Diego in 2001 to work for Children's Hospital and Health Center where I was fortunate to receive mentoring in the advanced practice area of pediatric feeding.  While at CHHC I successfully helped children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and Failure to Thrive to expand their food repertoire to over 30 foods.  Additionally, I worked with children on G-tubes to decrease oral sensitivities and transition to oral feedings.

I have worked in numerous school districts throughout San Diego county where I ran feeding groups and trained preschool staff to safely encourage a wider range of foods to be eaten during snack times.

In 2005 I began working in families homes where I gained a greater appreciation for what it takes to raise a child who struggles with eating.  It became clear to me that there was an emotional component faced by both children and parents.  This led me to continue my education in the areas of emotion, learning and communication by becoming a certified Master Practitioner and Trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Clinical Hypnosis and Time Empowerment Techniques  This allowed me to assist families with a comprehensive therapy approach.

In 2009 I renewed my training on the S.O.S. (Sequential Oral Sensory) Approach® to Feeding. Since then I have presented on the topic of feeding difficulties to Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, ABA Specialists, Infant Educators as well as Dietician students.

I am passionate about helping children succeed.  It brings me great joy to see children realize they are capable of much more than they thought. I enjoy working with families to bring more fun, ease and calm into their lives. If you want meal times to be more enjoyable in your home please contact me for a free 30 minute consultation.
