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.
