Thank you to all who participated in the Making a Critical Choice Seminar on Thursday, October 19th. Over 25o people attended to learn how to navigate the transition process. ADRC and Disability Rights Wisconsin shared helpful information and resources.
David Wahlberg from the Wisconsin State Journal was in attendance. He spoke to families who discussed their concerns about the transition. You can read his article by clicking here.
Click here for printable resources from the seminar. We will continue to update this page with new resources as they become available. A list of answers to the questions from the seminar will be posted soon.
The Arc Dane County continues to work on educational programing. We are currently partnered with LOV Dane to offer this upcoming program.
Still wondering about IRIS?

Orchard Ridge Church, 1501 Gilbert Rd, Madison
Registration is required. Click here to register.
Come learn from Dane Families who have already started their IRIS Journey.
- What was it like to work with an IRIS consultant?
- What materials were helpful in creating your plan?
- What worked well and what were the challenges?
- What happens if your IRIS budget is not sufficient to meet support needs?
Sheldon Kroning and John O’Keefe from the Department of Health Services will attend. Sheldon will present on the IRIS plan development process which will include the steps to review requests for IRIS budget increases.
Why won’t there be information about Family Care and Partnership at this meeting?
The state requirements for when for when Family Care and Partnership must begin and complete their planning process is slightly different than for IRIS. We will host learning events focusing on Family Care and Partnership at a later date.
Look for more programing coming in December to support you in the transition.
