Before Kara Dodds, my son received speech services with Rady's. I normally have great things to say about Rady's, but the way speech was set up (short 25 minute appointments once a week) just didn't work for us. Since switching to Kara Dodds, my son has made incredible progress.

Everyone on staff is personable, knowledgeable, and helpful. They were extremely accommodating when trying to find a regular appointment to meet our scheduling needs, and they worked really well with our insurance. Sessions are about 45 minutes long, which gives the therapist enough time to really get some work done (in my non-professional opinion). The therapist meets with either my husband or I after every session to discuss progress and goals. She also communicates with his school and other therapists to make sure everyone is on the same page. My son loves to go to speech and looks forward to seeing his therapist every week. We plan to stay with Kara Dodds as long as my son needs speech services.
