Maria Welding, OTR/L

Community Children’s

Specializes in:

  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Early intervention (0-3 years)
  • Hand therapy
  • Oral aversion
  • Sensory processing disorder

In caring for patients across the lifespan, Maria found her calling in serving the pediatric population. She enjoys working with patients, providing education, using creativity and loves finding that beautiful “ah-ha!” moment when functional outcomes arrive.

When not at work, she enjoys hanging out with her cats (Frank and Honey), comedy, woodworking, hiking and maintaining her duties as the “fun aunt” for 6 nieces and nephews.
