Leaders In Self Directed Care

We believe in supporting our aging and disabled neighbors to live their best lives by self-directing when, how, where and from whom they receive their personal care services. This mission is personal to our team, it reflects who we are and influences every aspect of our business. We’ve designed our services to provide a superior experience and ultimately a healthier life.
Description

Self-direction, sometimes referred to as ‘consumer-direction’ or ‘participant-direction’, enables aging and disabled individuals to choose where, how, and from whom they receive home and community-based services. Self-direction replaces the traditional home care model and puts control back into the hands of those receiving care.

In traditional models, home care providers maintain a significant amount of control over every aspect of care, which includes choosing who will provide caregiving services. This is a stark contrast to self-directed models, where the majority of care recipients choose and manage their own caregivers (often friends and/or family).

Community TIES is a UW-Waisman Center behavioral support program serving Dane County children/families, adolescents and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who live in the community. Our mission is to address behavioral, psychological, and emotional needs using therapeutic approaches that assure continued participation in supported community life. These needs – if not addressed – are often expressed through “challenging behaviors” – which might include aggressions, self-injurious behavior, or property destruction. Many individuals served by TIES often have co-occurring mental health conditions.
Description

Community TIES – in partnership with Dane County Human Services – works directly with the person with a disability, their families and community teams involved in the person’s support. Community teams might include supported living or supported employment agencies, public schools, respite providers, CLTS case management agencies, Support Brokers, Family Care Managed Care Organizations, or IRIS Consulting agencies. The TIES program began in 1986 and has steadily grown in the number of persons served as well as the range of services offered.Length of a TIES referral can range from a short-term intensive engagement to multiple years of ongoing direct contact and team participation. It is common for TIES to become re-involved with individuals/teams years after an initial consultation. Consultations often span the transition from child to adult services. TIES also offers a variety of Community Training activities which are attended by provider agencies from across the State.TIES activities are a creative blend of various positive practices that have proven effective in meeting complex behavioral and mental health challenges within supported community life.

The Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin's mission is to provide support to Wisconsin families and individuals with Down syndrome and related disabilities through awareness, education, information, programs, services, and the exchange of ideas and experiences. We promote the value of those with Down syndrome in our lives and our communities. We continually strive toward full acceptance, full access, full potential and a full life to make Wisconsin the best supported state for people with Down syndrome and their loved ones.

No matter where someone lives in Wisconsin, DSAW can provide them resources and support on their journey. Whether it’s the scared young couple who has just received a diagnosis and fears the unknown; or the families who need support with potty training, learning how to ride a bike, and navigating the public school system; or those who need help transitioning from high-school to adulthood – DSAW is there.
Description

The founding families of DSAW came together in 1990 to chart a new course for their children. For seven years, this group met in hospitals and libraries to discuss their hopes for their children. From these meetings, the DSAW we know today was born.

Over the course of the year, DSAW touches the lives of more than 5,500 people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) through the provision of services, education, resources and support. DSAW is able to make a difference in thousands of lives because of the incredible support of our community. We are a 30-year-old volunteer driven organization – we have more than 800 volunteers throughout the state!! It is their energy and passion that fuels our mission forward.

Description

ECAD's Canine Magic is a specialized program focused on providing Service Dogs to children with Autism. ECAD is one of the few accredited Service Dog providers which accepts children with Autism as young as two years old.These dogs assist a child with Autism in areas of social, emotional, and cognitive development, but the dog's primary duty is to increase the child's physical safety by "anchoring". Anchoring is a method in which the dog wears a harness that is attached to the child's belt. The child also holds the harness and is taught to walk with the dog, but a third party facilitator (usually a parent or teacher) holds a second leash attached to the dog's collar. The parent can then give the dog a command to "stay" if the child becomes distracted, frustrated, or tries to bolt away, enabling the child to function well in situations that were previously impossible to handle.

What families do have in common is the need for flexible and individualized assistance that will help keep them connected to their community, hopeful about the future, and supported in managing the extra stresses and expenses. Because disabilities are not typically cured and their impact often increases over time, most families we serve need long-term supports.Family Support staff work with families to:Understand and gain access to available resourcesCoordinate services, advocate for the child and facilitate teamwork and problem-solvingPurchase needed goods and services not available through other funding sourcesHelp families to build and strengthen networks of supports, to encourage friendships for their children, and to plan for the future

Initiated in 1986, the Waisman Center Children’s Theatre (WCCT) enhances the arts for young children in Dane County by providing high quality, diverse, educational, and interactive live theatrical performances at a modest cost and in fully accessible settings. The Friends of the Waisman Center Auditorium is the indoor setting for the majority of the Children’s Theatre performances. With a formal stage and individual seats accommodating up to 250 people, the fully accessible auditorium provides an intimate yet informal traditional theatre experience.The WCCT features a variety of performers—magicians, singers, dancers, musical groups, “learning is fun” educators/performers, and professional theatrical companies. An important goal of the series is to include culturally and ethnically diverse performers and activities—from Cajun music to Irish Dancing; from Italian folk tales to traditional Mexican dances. Many of the performances showcase children as the sole performers or “stars” of the production, such as Dance Wisconsin, PlayTime Productions, and Trinity Academy of Irish Dance. By including these performances in the series, children are given inspiration and role models for expressing themselves through the arts.

Good Dog! was founded by a family with an autistic son who experienced a miraculous transformation after getting a service dog. We've formed a nationwide team of professionals with a shared love for the human-canine bond and passion to empower those dealing with disabilities.
Description

Service dogs are specially trained for families of children* with autism, and related diagnoses, such as but not limited to Down Syndrome, Fragile X, Apraxia, and ADHD. Good Dogs are trained to perform specific tasks to mitigate these disabilities. Examples of tasks include applying pressure, receiving pressure, interrupting or redirecting behavior, providing focus and grounding, and creating a social and communicative bridge. All service dogs are placed as teams of three that include the dog, child, and a parent/caregiver who lives with the child and serves as the primary dog handler.*The term “child” refers to a person with a disability of any age who is not going to be handling the dog independently and/or who may be able to handle the dog independently in the future.  We do not have an age limit for our service dog recipients paired with an adult handler.

Our organization was founded by nonprofit leaders and stakeholders seeking to promote affordable housing for first time home buyers at or below 80% of median income in the Madison and Dane County area.
Description

The Madison Area Community Land Trust (MACLT) is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that has been taking land off of the speculative market for current and future generations in Madison, Wisconsin, since 1991.Our organization was founded by nonprofit leaders and stakeholders seeking to promote affordable housing for first time home buyers at or below 80% of median income in the Madison and Dane County area. Housing prices in the Madison area have risen beyond the means of moderately-low income people: the median price of a home in Madison jumped from $83,000 in 1991 to $205,000 in 2005, and over $300,000 in 2020, while wages have stagnated.Buying a home through MACLT saves homebuyers 30% on average, or $56,000!Under the community land trust (CLT) model, homeowners purchase their house, but not the land (this lowers the purchase price). The land is leased by the homeowner from the land trust. When MACLT homeowners sell their home, 75% of the appreciated value stays with the house, so it’s more affordable for the next buyer. The CLT homeowner also gets to keep the equity they invested into the home plus 25% of the increase in value.

The Madison United IEP Parent Support Program aims to provide support and advocacy to the parents and all kinds of caregivers of students with disabilities in the MMSD special education community. The program's objective is to bring these individuals together to share resources, ideas, and feedback to improve the Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for their students and create a better learning environment.
Description

We understand that being a caregiver can be tough, especially when it comes to supporting your student's education. That's why we're here to help connect you with other caregivers who are going through similar experiences.

We'll match you with other caregivers based on your student's age, IEP classification, and school (if possible). Then, you'll be able to exchange emails and offer each other support, resources, and an open line of communication.

You can sign up as either a "Support Parent" or a "Match Parent". If you're a Support Parent, you'll mentor another caregiver. If you're a Match Parent, you'll receive support from another caregiver.

Managing Threatening Confrontations is offered both in person and virtually, and is offered in both a child focused session and an adult focused session. Some of their sessions have live Spanish interpretation. Some of what you’ll learn:A framework for understanding and recognizing stages of behavior escalationHow to avoid “power struggles” that can result in behavioral escalationSkills in connecting with individuals early on, in order to sustain emotional controlAn array of creative communication strategies during periods of tensionHow caregivers can support both clients and themselves during the Recovery Stage
Description

Managing Threatening Confrontations is designed to assist you in learning how to effectively support individuals who could experience the full range of behavioral escalation. These moments often appear chaotic-when to talk, when to step back, who to call for back up, and “when to duck.” This seminar is designed to put order to the chaos. Stages of escalation are described and each stage is paired with a positive action plan for caregivers as well as teams. The content places strong emphasis on proactive supports. The principles are taught in a straightforward manner so as to provide a framework for conceptualizing behavior escalation that can readily translate into positive plans of action. The learning is brought to life using a video of a dramatic, real life enactment of threatening confrontations by professional actors.

“Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities by providing the support and training necessary for each person to work and participate in the community and live as independently as possible.”
MTILP, Inc. provides long-term support of daily living skills training, vocational training, and job placement for over 100 adults with disabilities in Dane County.
Our Supported Employment Program assists people with disabilities to acquire and maintain employment.
Our Day Program Services provides clients in the Madison area with individualized programming and community integration that enhances their quality of life.
Description

MTILP was initially founded in 1987 by Joan Fischer Wealti to provide Occupational Therapy Services through a private contract with the Dane County Department of Human Services.  In 1995, Joan’s late husband, Harry Fischer, joined her when the opportunity arose to provide employment services for adults with developmental disabilities.  At that time, there were only three employees.  Shortly after Harry joined MTILP, the agency received a contract that focused on community-based support for individuals with higher physical needs. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 pandemic, the contract ended. Since then, MTILP continues to be committed to both the Day Service and Supported Employment areas; providing services to almost 100 clients. 
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities by providing the support and training necessary for each person to work and participate in the community, and live as independently as possible. 
Our Day Program provides disabled individuals with opportunities to maximize independence while concentrating on their individualized needs. Programming areas include daily living skills, music (auditory stimulation), sensory stimulation, recreation & exercise, computer/tablet activities, and community outings. This program also provides for individuals who are no longer able to work or who would like to attend programming during non-work hours. Our employees also provide support to clients who have employment throughout the Dane County area. Our support helps clients maintain employment, be successful in their careers, as well as assist in obtaining additional employment opportunities.

Having a child with special health care needs sets parents on a different journey than the one that was originally expected. Fortunately, many parents have “gone before” and can be a source of strength, direction and empowerment. Through a one-on-one match, Parent to Parent of Wisconsin pairs parents in need of guidance with a trained Support Parent who has walked a similar path. Like each family, every match is unique.
Description

At Parent to Parent of Wisconsin, we help parents find a one-to-one connection with a trained Support Parent, who knows firsthand about the feelings and realities that come with having a child with special needs. No parent should feel alone. Ever.
No provider referral is necessary. Any parent of a child with special needs who is interested can self-refer on our website.
For Spanish-speaking parents: Our program coordinator is bilingual and we have some trained Support Parents who speak Spanish.

Athletes are the heart of Special Olympics. Our athletes are children and adults with intellectual disabilities from all around the world, with more than 9,000 in Wisconsin. They are finding success, joy and friendship as part of our global community. They're also having lots of fun!
Description

Everybody is different. Special Olympics is for people who are different because they learn new skills slowly. They are different in other ways as well. They have an intellectual disability, or ID. Intellectual disabilities happen in all cultures, races and countries. The goal of Special Olympics Wisconsin (SOWI) is to reach out to the more than 145,000 people in the state with ID. Our 9,000+ SOWI athletes—ages 8 years old and up—come from all regions of the state. We also have a Young Athletes program for children ages 2 to 10. At any age and in every county, our athletes are learning new skills, making new friends and gaining in fitness and confidence.Special Olympics Wisconsin trainings and competitions happen 365 days a year. We offer 19 Olympic-style winter, spring, summer and fall sports. All sports are coached by certified volunteer coaches. Many athletes start in one sport, then go on to try others.There is no upper age limit, and in fact, the average age of an athlete is 33. So whatever your age or skill level, Special Olympics has something for you.

Supported Decision-Making is an alternative to guardianship through which individuals get help from trusted family members, friends and professionals to help them understand the situations and choices they face, so they can make their own decisions. Supported Decision-Making enables individuals to ask for support where and when they need it. Supported Decision-Making agreements can be used for many kinds of decisions including medical, financial, housing and other life matters. Powers of attorney, representative payees and simple release of information forms can also help families provide the needed supports and safeguards without going to court and imposing guardianship restrictions.
