Teaching good manners, etiquette, and social skills to girls and boys ages 3 to 17.

headshotFelicia M Knowles, MD is a native Memphian.  Dr. Knowles received her medical degree from the University of Tennessee-Memphis College Of Medicine. She completed her internship and residency at the Marshfield Clinic in Marshfield, Wisconsin.  After returning to the Memphis area and practicing for a number of years in pediatrics, she completed a fellowship in Child Neurology/Developmental Disabilities and received specialized training in ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, Tourette syndrome, seizures, sleep and other childhood neurological disorders.   She worked at Memphis Neurology for over 5 years.

During this time, Dr. Knowles developed more holistic approaches to addressing her patients’ conditions.  In 2008 she founded the A.D.D & Dyslexia Therapy Center in Germantown TN.  She has since moved to the Memphis area and opened the ADHD Center of Memphis. Dr. Knowles has been a consultant to schools and physicians dealing with ADHD.  She has appeared on several television programs and written articles on this subject.  She has received numerous awards for her work.

In working with children, parents have expressed concerns about the social skills and manners of their youngsters.  This sparked her latest endeavor- Molly Manners, as Dr. Knowles realized that all children, ranging in age from youngsters to tweens, could benefit from learning social graces, manners, and etiquette.

In her spare time, she volunteers with schools in lower income areas and created the LIFE (Living is fun with Exercise) Program to combat obesity for at-risk students.  She is married and enjoys spending time with her two daughters, Summer and Chloe.
