Southland Snapshot: Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


Another LUCKY AmTryke Recipient!

On February 27th, 2018, Kendrick become another lucky Southland patient to receive a new set of wheels. His family will be moving soon, so sadly we had to say goodbye. We were very happy that his tricycle arrived just in time so he can take it with him on his next adventures. We would like to thank the AMBUCS of Savannah President, Kevin Sheehan and AmTryke sponsor, Cecilia Russo Turner (Cecilia Russo Turner Marketing, LLC) for making this a reality for Kendrick. It was very special to have the entire team here at Southland Therapy Services to celebrate alongside Kendrick and his family.  During the month of February Katie helped two other children receive their AmTryke tricycles- way to go Katie!

“Kendrick received an AmTryke to allow a safe way for him to interact with his family and peers and will provide a means for exercise and to enjoy being outdoors. Riding a foot propelled bike will also provide a way for him to work on strengthening his legs and his core muscles for improved gross motor function. This bike will also help him to work on gross motor coordination, left and right discrimination and motor planning.” - PT Katie Osborne

           Congratulations Kendrick- safe travels to you and your family!

Tumble Tykes St. Patricks Playdate 


In the week leading up to the March 10th playdate, Southland Therapy patients worked hard to make a piece of the rainbow. Busy cutting, gluing, taping and coloring, the patients’ paper pieces, when put altogether, turned into a wonderful paper chain rainbow that now resides in our OT/ PT room for all to enjoy. The Tumble Tykes kids had so much fun walking over the leprechaun gold on the balance beam and swinging in our cloud swing!

Keep an eye out for our next Spring themed playdate!

February: a month full of AmTryke love! 

Our therapists work very hard to be sure all patients receive the services they deserve. One of those services include helping families apply for an AmTryke adaptive tricycle. This month, TWO of our wonderful patients received their tykes and we couldn’t be happier for them and their families. Don’t take our word for it, their smiling faces say it all!

Zack sees Physical Therapist Katie for general strengthening, balance and gross motor coordination. He loves to swing, throw or roll balls and slide during therapy. Everyone agrees that his smile is contagious! “He got a tryke that allows him to use his arms and legs to help him propel the bike which is good for learning reciprocal movements and left/right discrimination and coordination,” said PT Katie. 

Brianna also sees Physical Therapist Katie for balance and gross motor coordination. “She received an arm and foot bike to assist with right left discrimination, coordination and general strengthening” said PT Katie. She is an adorable 2.5 year old who loves coming to Southland to work with Katie!

Gracie named one of South Magazine’s Greatest Kids! 

South Magazine asked for submissions for the greatest kids in the south and received more than expected.  “For the first-ever greatest kids contest, south asked Savannahians to submit photos of their kids, and they did—by the hundreds. Then, still leaving it in the hands of the locals, we let readers choose the winners. The results speak for themselves. It’s official; the South undoubtedly has the cutest kids around.” (excerpt from

We are excited to share that one of Southland’s very own was chosen! Gracie has been a patient at Southland for almost a year and sees SLP Marjory for Childhood Apraxia. “Since she has been coming (to Southland) her vocabulary has grown exponentially and she is much more willing to try new words and phrases. She loves working with Miss Marjory and talking to Miss Regina and Miss Zandia,” her mother Carrie stated.

Along with her adorable photo, this great biography was written by her dad to highlight her sweet spirit. Her profile was published in the January/ February issue of South Magazine.

“Reagan Grace “Gracie” Wahesh is an active, helpful, and independent 2 1/2-year-old who was born four weeks early and has been on the go ever since. She’s shy at first, but after a few minutes, her natural desire to lead comes out. She might not seem as energetic as her little brother, but she loves to climb, slide, swing, and play fetch with her giant golden retriever. She laughs the hardest when she successfully steals her mom’s nose. When it is time to relax, she loves to swing in one of the hammocks by the marsh at Palmetto Bluff.”

Congratulations Gracie and family! 

We are so proud to have one of the South’s greatest kids in our midst!
