Ivy Rehab for Kids Opens New Pediatric Therapy & ABA Facility in DeWitt, MI

Ivy Rehab for Kids is thrilled to introduce its opening of a state-of-the-art facility in DeWitt, Michigan. The unique space has two pediatric therapy offices: pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapy, as well as an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy clinic. 

The highly trained team at each office specializes in developing individualized treatment plans customized for each patient’s unique needs. The therapists work closely with each patient to create the best, individualized recovery plan and are dedicated to helping patients reach their full potential. 

“Pediatric occupational, speech and physical therapy, and applied behavioral analysis therapy (ABA) can be extremely important to a child’s development. Unfortunately, many kids don’t get the services they need because the services are not close to home,” said Jenny LaRue, OTRL and Regional Director for Pediatric clinics in Michigan. “I am excited to bring these much-needed services to the DeWitt neighborhood and surrounding communities.”
