The Wisconsin Family Support 360 project offered several different kinds of services:

Information and Assistance to Families

Wisconsin Family Support 360 was available to any family member or provider who had questions or who wanted information and support about accessing resources, supports, and services for children with developmental disabilities in Dane County.

Educational Opportunities

Family Support 360 conducted free trainings, called Learning Circles, for families and providers on various disability-related topics. Learning Circles are intended to foster an environment of mutual learning and respect for each others' experience with and knowledge of children with disabilities.
