Our team at Progressive Beginnings is an energetic, dedicated, and passionate group of Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech and Language Pathologists. We are the premier provider for pediatric therapy for Sheboygan County and surrounding communities.

In addition to pediatrics, we have developed the niche practice of aquatic therapy for both kids and adults offering the only warm water aquatic therapy pool in Sheboygan County.
We start with the approach of understanding the unique situation and goals of each child or adult and work with the patient (and their family) to achieve optimal well being. We have the knowledge, skill, service, equipment, and unique modalities to offer you a one of a kind therapeutic experience in Sheboygan County.
We offer quick and easy developmental checklists for children 1-14 years old, free 30 minute, on-site developmental screenings, as well as several enrichment classes to promote development and attainment of skills.

Find your LOVE for movement!
Feb 2, 2022
Our bodies are designed to move. Although the idea of moving seems simple, we often forget how much our bodies need movement!
The CDC recommends that:
-KIDS have 60 minutes every DAY of moderate to vigorous activity
-ADULTS have 2.5 hours every WEEK, or 30 minutes each DAY at least 5 days a week of moderate activity.
