Roadmap Sessions

DSAW offers Roadmap Sessions to help families plot out a plan of action to overcome the obstacles in their loved one's life. Roadmaps give you and your loved one a set of detailed action steps that you can take to make your dreams for your loved one come to life. Families can take the plans and implement them or enlist the help of DSAW and DSAW-Family Services for plan implementation.

DSAW and DSAW-Family Services Roadmap Specialists are headquartered in Milwaukee, and Roadmap Sessions are offered in cities across Wisconsin on a rotating basis. Roadmaps can also be conducted virtually via phone or Skype. Most Roadmap Sessions last two hours and are individual one-on-one meetings where families leave with a specific list of actions to complete.
