Little Steps Pediatric Therapy is Now Offering ABA Services in Park Ridge, IL

Little Steps Pediatric Therapy, an Ivy Rehab for Kids partner, is now offering ABA services in Park Ridge, IL. The facility is located at 444 N Northwest Highway, in front of Jewel Osco. This new facility marks the second ABA location with Little Steps in Illinois.   

Little Steps – ABA Therapy supports children and their families to learn new skills and techniques using the most effective therapy for autism. They aim to work on what’s most important to the child and their support system by creating an individualized treatment program tailored to their needs. Whether it’s working on communication, social skills, aggression, non-compliance, self-help skills, play, academics, or fine or gross motor skills, the team always addresses specific concerns for each individual. They focus on increasing the child’s skills while decreasing undesirable behaviors.     

We couldn’t be happier to continue to expand our ABA services to more families. I am grateful for our director Stephanie and what she brings to the team,” said Jaime Passaglia, Regional Director of Pediatrics in Illinois. “Her expertise and leadership are second to none. I am so lucky to work with such an amazing team and collectively be able to continue to help families and children every step of the way.” 

Stephanie Bates, M.A., BCBA, serves as the Clinic Director and Board-Certified Behavior Analyst at the ABA facility in Park Ridge.   

“I am thrilled to be able to open this clinic right in the heart of Park Ridge, to provide not only the highest quality ABA to a community that has lacked center-based service options but to get to do so in a truly collaborative environment with the other Little Steps pediatric therapies clinicians,” said Stephanie. “True coordination of care makes a huge difference for the kids and families we support, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring one more service into that care model!” 

Stephanie has been a Board Certified Behavior Analyst since 2009. While her career has seen seasons providing clinical services to individuals from birth to 70 and administration, her passion is for using ABA to help the pediatric population achieve their greatest possible outcomes. As the BCBA & ABA Clinic Director at Little Steps / Ivy ABA, I get to partner with families, physicians, and other providers to do just that! When she’s not working, Stephanie loves to read, make homemade gifts, and walk through the many forest preserves nearby.
