Little Steps Pediatric Therapy and Mettler Center are now part of the Ivy Rehab Network, according to separate news releases.

Little Steps Pediatric Therapy, comprised of six clinics in the greater Chicago metropolitan area, offers not only pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapy services but also supplemental educational programs, such as enrichment pods, social skills camps, and preschool readiness programs, to help children hone specific skills.

Mettler Center, located in Champaign, Ill, was founded more than 30 years ago and joins Ivy’s network of clinics throughout the Midwest.

The Next Step in Development

“Little Steps has grown so much in the past year, and we’re thrilled to take this next step in our practice’s development by joining the Ivy Rehab Network. Our patients mean the world to us, and this partnership highlights our commitment to their quality and personalized care and allows us to reach more and more children every step of the way.  We’re excited for the new opportunities that joining the Ivy Rehab Network will open up for our patients, the community, and our teammates.”

“The values of Little Steps and Ivy are very much aligned, they are a great fit for our network of partners. We are thrilled to have them as our first pediatric partner in the Chicagoland region, and we are looking forward to growing together as we provide our youngest patients with the highest caliber of pediatric care.”
