Anna Giannobile Dearman MOT, LOTR, CLC

Anna attended Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans and graduated in 2012 with a Master of Occupational Therapy. She has extensive knowledge and experience in pediatric orthopedic conditions including splinting prosthetics and equipment management from her time spent working at Shriner’s Hospitals for Children in Shreveport, LA. She is a Certified Lactation Counselor and is currently working towards international board certification by completing the requirements to sit for the IBCLC exam. She is a tethered oral tissue (TOTS) trained provider, enabling her to establish a pre and post frenectomy plan of care tailored to each child. She works with dentists, ENTS, and physicians to perform functional feeding/oral motor function assessments on the bottle, breast, and with solids pre/post procedure as well as assess for body tension and provide bodywork to ensure the child is ready for the procedure and that the procedure is required.  She is able to collaborate with recommended release providers to develop a plan of care to meet your family’s needs. She has completed feeding therapy training allowing for treatment of all pediatric feeding conditions as well beyond infancy! Anna has 3 children of her own and understands the struggles that come along when feeding difficulties arise. Her own experiences inspired her to seek out lactation credentials so that she could provide accessible lactation care to our community.
