Finding the Words

North Paulding Speech Language Therapy's new Roswell office can help kids sleep, eat and speak

Founded by Laura Knott-Riggall, M.A., CCC-SLP in 2012, North Paulding Speech Language Therapy is one of the most respected speech language therapy clinics in Georgia. We sat down with Laura to find out more about the services offered in the Roswell office.

RCL: Can you give us an example of what kind of therapy you are doing with kids under 10, teens, young adults and also adults?

Laura Knott-Riggall, North Paulding: Absolutely! We serve infant-mother dyads who are struggling to breastfeed, children of all ages who are not eating a variety of foods or are struggling to chew and swallow foods, children and teens with tethered oral tissues (tongue and lip ties) that are affecting their articulation/eating/breathing/sleeping, children and teens who have mild-severe articulation disorders including phonological processes and apraxia of speech, children and teens with weakness in understanding and/or using language to communicate socially or to understand school content areas. We are able to treat adults, but the majority of patients are our pediatric patients.  

RCL: What are some unique tools and strategies that your office has found success with?

LKR: We have a Certified Breastfeeding Specialist on staff to help babies successfully latch and therefore gain weight. We have training on PROMPT, SOS Approach to Feeding, Orofacial Myofunctional Disorder training through the IAOM. Combined, we have years of experience in both the schools and in private practice.  

RCL: You have offices in Acworth and Cartersville. Why did you choose Roswell for another office location?

LKR: My sister is a speech language pathologist so we added this location so that we could work together. We are very close. The location of the building is just one block off of Holcomb Bridge Rd. and very close to the exit ramp for Hwy 400. The parking is right in front of the building and the therapy rooms are spacious. 

RCL: You are powered by people. Who is on your clinic staff?

LKR: Yes, we are! Caroline Niemeier, CCC-SLP, Certified Breastfeeding Specialist; Laura Knott-Riggall, CCC-SLP; Mallery Fennell, CCC-SLP; Eilish Schweitzer, CCC-SLP; Caroline Hohl, CF.

RCL: Congratulations for celebrating 10 years! You have our attention. What else would you like to share with our readers?

LKR: We are new to Roswell, but not to speech therapy. The SLPs have varied experiences and are constantly attending conferences to stay up to date on new information in our field. We learn as a team and work as a team. You will find the staff to be happy and energetic and very willing to give you the tools to help your child at home.
