  • Quick Reference Guide
    Transportation Provider Options in Dane County for People with Developmental and Other Disabilities.

  • Transportation Reference and Individualized Planning (T.R.I.P.) Toolkit
    The Transportation Independence Project (TIP) has prepared this toolkit to increase informed transportation decision making in people with developmental disabilities as they consider: how transportation helps them live the life they choose, self-assess their needs, explore the full continuum of transportation options, select the best option for each trip and take steps to arrange services and supports. The toolkit may be used independently, or with the help of family, a caregiver or a team who supports an individual.

Services for Children Under the Age of 18
  • Children’s Long Term Support (CLTS). This program funds community supports and services for children who have substantial limitations in their daily activities and need support to remain in their home or community. Eligible children include those with developmental disabilities, severe emotional disturbances, and physical disabilities. Funding can be used to support a range of different services based on an assessment of the needs of the child and his or her family.

    The Katie Beckett Program is a program that allows certain children with long-term disabilities, mental illness, or complex medical needs, living at home with their families, to obtain a ForwardHealth card (Medicaid).

    Children who are not eligible for other Medicaid programs because the income or assets of their parents are too high may be eligible for Medicaid through the Katie Beckett Program. A child may be eligible for this source of Medicaid even if they are currently covered under a private health insurance policy.
