About - Your Kid's Table

Alisha Grogan

Owner of Your Kids Table

Meet Alisha 


I’m Alisha Grogan, a licensed pediatric occupational therapist with over 18 years of experience and a mom to three boys. I have a deep desire to give parents real solutions to all things feeding and sensory! 

I’ve not only helped thousands of families all over the world, I’ve experienced these same challenges first hand in my own home, with my kids.

I get how hard it is to have dinner on the table or to have a baby that refuses food or a child that won’t wear jeans. I GET IT!

Feeding and sensory are huge aspects of our kids lives. Understanding and knowing how to help them can literally change their lives and yours!


Alisha Grogan is a Duquesne University alum and holds a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy from 2004. She has primarily worked in the early intervention program for Allegheny County in Pennsylvania, which provides in-home therapy to children 0-3 years of age. Alisha also spent several years in Easter Seals of Pittsburgh working as a school therapist in approved private schools and directly in students home through PA Cyber Schools.


Alisha began her career at Lynne Isreal and Associates in Washington D.C. As an OT in this private practice, she had the opportunity to work at a progressive and innovative therapy based summer sensory camp, provide outpatient occupational therapy, and treat directly in the school setting.

Throughout these various settings, Alisha has worked with children from birth through 21 years old.

Alisha has also completed a variety of continuing education courses on children’s feeding skills and sensory processing. In part, those courses have shaped her clinical approach and strategies. Some of the information you find here is based on her exprience using those strategies. Alisha particularly loves and recommends the S.O.S. (Sensory, Oral, Sequential) Approach to Feeding and Talk Tools.

*Alisha is licesensed as an occupational therapist in the state of Pennsylvania and nationally certified by the National Board Certification of Occupational Therapist (NBCOT).

“Mealtimes used to be a struggle before. I cannot even describe how big. When I started the program he would refuse to sit on his highchair unless I would let him have the iPhone. He now asks to be seated.”

My Favorite Eating and Sensory Stuff for Kids


Get the tools I use as an OT and mom for everything from spoons that are easy for toddlers to use to the inexpensive sensory tool that can help keep your kid calm.

I believe that every parent can feel confident about meeting their child’s feeding milestones like learning to eat table foods, drinking from a straw, and using a spoon.

I also believe that all parents can enjoy family meals and manage picky eating in a way that is stress-free.

And, I believe that sensory processing doesn’t have to be complicated and confusing, but instead can be understood and applied to help a wider variety of children than many realize.

Of course, I know this is only possible with education, and that is the drive behind Your Kid’s Table. I desperately want to teach parents just like you, so that we can begin to make a real change about how parents help their children eat and engage in sensory activities.

That’s not too much to ask, is it? I hope not, because it’s time!

“The number of meals we can all eat happily together has increased HUGELY!


My favorite thing to do is spend time with my family, next to that it’s reading a good book. You’ll usually find me wearing a pair of jeans. I live in them, unless it’s a hot humid summer day in Pittsburgh, where I was born, raised and still live.

I’m a Trader Joe’s groupie and treat myself to a tall coconut milk latte at Starbucks from time to time, but I drink herbal tea all day every day.

My friends will tell you that I like to talk. A lot. And in detail… Has that come across here?

My husband is pretty awesome, part of his awesome-ness is being really good at building stuff. I love art and design, so we’re always involved in some DIY project. Before deciding to be an OT (and I’m glad I did), I spent my whole life dreaming of being an artist.

My boys, Sam, Isaac, and James inspire me as I always strive to make sure I’m slowing down enough to remember that these are the days


Are you ready to learn how to help your child and end all the worry?
