Maura W. M.A., CCC - SLP

Speech Language Pathologist

Maura received her B.A from Western Washington University in Communication Sciences and Disorders and her M.A from Washington State University in Speech Language Pathology. Her final rotation in graduate school brought her to Arizona, where she completed my last semester at Cardon Children’s Medical Center. Maura’s favorite part of being a therapist is having those ‘ah-ha’ moments with her clients and families. Sometimes that’s when a little one says a new word or when an older child figures out how to make a sound correctly. Being a part of these milestones with families makes my job incredible. Outside of work you can find her outside. Whether it’s climbing a mountain, or exploring a neighborhood, she’d rather be outdoors. Maura’s favorite hobbies include whitewater rafting and backpacking. Since my move to San Diego, she’s also becoming a big fan of the beach!

Watching the documentary brought tears to my eyes and made my heart swell up. Words will never be able to express what the therapists at Kara dodds have done for our family.

Six months ago, I brought my son Atticus in for his evaluation, with only a handful of words and a tendancy to withdraw from interaction, I was desperately seeking someone...someway to help him.

Today he is like a brand new kid! He is thriving! Talking, playing, and so happy. I am so proud that he is mine, and to have kara dodds to thank for helping to give him the words and the will to use them.

When Physical Therapists see a clumsy or uncoordinated child, one of the first thoughts we think is “That kid can use some balance training!” or “They could benefit from functional activity practice!” What current evidence based research is finding is that strength and power training can be just as helpful if not MORE helpful than functional movement training!
