We hope you are all settling into your new school routines and your kids are loving the start of their new year! If you have any questions on IEPs, in-school services or concerns, please ask your therapist. We are here to help advise in anyway we can. 

This past week we had quite a scare when Hurricane Irma made her way for our coast and affected many of our neighbors and those in our surrounding states. We hope you and your loved ones are all okay and are thankful it didn’t hit as hard as predicted. Hurricane season isn’t quite over and we hope that we won’t have anymore major storms, but if we do please remember to watch our Facebook for updates and office closures.

Please help us in welcoming two new South Carolina therapists

Laura Dukes:

I graduated from Clemson University with a BA in Biology and a minor in Psychology. I then attended the Medical University of South Carolina and obtained my Doctorate in Physical Therapy graduating in 2010. I have worked in an outpatient clinic setting and a school setting, serving pediatric patients the majority of my seven years of practice. I am excited to begin this adventure working with young children in their homes and look forward to the challenge of helping them grow and develop. I enjoy working in pediatrics because it is a constant learning experience, with no child being exactly like another. I live near St. George, South Carolina and enjoy spending time with my husband, 4 year old daughter and 4 month old son.

Kayley John:

I graduated in 2015 with a MS in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. I have been working as a SLP for 2 years with children in preschool through high school settings. My favorite part of the job is seeing a child gain confidence by achieving one of their communication goals for the very first time. I have lived in the Charleston area for one year now and am originally from the Northwest suburbs of Chicago.

Congratulations are in order…

Georgia Occupational Therapist Nicole Calabro completed 13 Evaluations and Georgia Physical Therapist Holly Fennell completed 16 Evaluations in  the month of September and all documentation was complete!

Great Job Nicole & Holly! You are worker bees and we are lucky to have you! 


After a dedicated 7 years with Southland Therapy, Hannah Hood, M.S. CCC-SLP has recently transitioned to a new position closer to her home in Richmond Hill, GA.  Hannah has worked for Southland Therapy since May 2010.  She started out as a CFY SLP working in the natural environment in South Carolina.  When the Savannah clinic was opened in 2011, Hannah was the first SLP to work at our clinic location in Savannah.  In 2012, she was willing to see kids in the natural environment in Bryan county in addition to seeing kids here in our office.  She was always willing to take on more clients and she loved working with kids!  As Hannah worked with a variety of communication disorders, she touched the lives of her patients and those who worked along side her.  She decided to work closer to home and cut down on her commute giving her more time to send with her two beautiful children.  Good luck Hannah, you will be sadly missed!



Congratulations and enjoy your goodies!
