Description of Services

The Circles of Life Conference is in our 39th year as the annual, statewide conference for families of children and youth with disabilities and the professionals who support them. In 2023, over 700 families and professionals attended Circles of Life. This is a unique opportunity for families to develop new skills, learn about resources, and form lasting relationships. The conference includes a keynote, over 25 breakout sessions, and evening events. Gathering of Youth is a unique conference track for teens and young adults, ages 13 to 22, who have disabilities. These are supervised sessions that run while parents take part in the keynote and workshops.Sibshops are celebrations of the contributions made by sisters and brothers of kids with special health needs. As a registered Sibshop of WisconSibs, Inc., this workshop for “typical” siblings, ages 8-13, provides lively, age-appropriate activities and relaxed discussions about the challenges and joys of having a sibling with disabilities.
