Myrah Malik

Kinesiologist & Therapy Support Worker, Therapy Admin

Myrah has been an integral member of our team and has helped with our Centre’s development since we opened Spring of 2018. She now works part-time at We Play as she is currently completing her Masters of Science in Rehabilitation Sciences at UBC with Dr. Jill Zwicker. The focus of her studies are using Neuroimaging techniques to find neural correlates in children with Developmental Coordination Disorder to guide rehab intervention for children with DCD. We are very excited she is pursuing this exciting area of research. We see many children with Developmental Coordination Disorder at We Play, therefore her studies are highly relevant for our clinical practice and community.
 
Myrah completed her Bachelor of Science degree with a Major in Kinesiology from SFU in 2019, and began her MSc this January 2020. She continues to work with our Therapy Team as a Therapy Support Worker, and has experience working with children with a variety of developmental and neurological conditions.
