Community TIES

Community TIES

Matt Ward works at the Madison Public Library The Community TIES (Training, Intervention, and Education Services) program offers support to children, adolescents and adults with developmental disabilities who reside in Dane County and present challenging behaviors. Family members, guardians, and service agencies often report significant stress in supporting individuals with developmental disabilities who present challenging behaviors and thus may require additional support. The TIES program seeks to enable these individuals to remain in their natural environment. In doing so, the TIES program utilizes and teaches non-punitive ways to redirect or modify specific behaviors. The program provides support and consultation in the community based environment where a person’s challenging behavior occurs.
