Deanna Riggs, MS CCC-SLP/L

Deanna was born and raised in Wisconsin. She moved to Lake County where she joined the Pediatric Interactions team. She is a mother of three children- two boys and a girl. In addition to spending time with her husband and children, Deanna keeps busy with her two dogs, Louis and Hank! As a family, Deanna enjoys attending summer festivals and the Farmer's Market. Outside of the clinic she likes to spend time with her family, be outdoors, bake, volunteer, and care for rescue animals.

Deanna has a lot of work experience in other settings including home health, clinic, hospital, and skilled nursing facilities and with a variety of different age groups. Professionally she enjoys a holistic approach to treating each child and has completed coursework and training as a CranioSacral therapist and offers sessions for children and adults. Deanna enjoys learning and expanding her skills in areas of allergy/food safety, pragmatic development, feeding and swallowing, cognitive-communication skills, and language.

Deanna not only was able to identify my daughter’s needs for treatment, but also provide us with suggestions on how support her progress to speak again. Our daughter’s osychotherapist and the staff at her Day Program have also implemented the suggestions and the results have been AMAZING! Everyone says, “Keep going to that speech therapist, she is a miracle worker!”
