Barry Kress is a self-advocate from West Allis. In addition to being the president of both People First Wisconsin and People First Milwaukee, he recently completed the BPDD’s Partners in Policymaking program.
The BPDD provides many opportunities for people with disabilities, their family members, and professionals to improve the lives of people with disabilities in Wisconsin. Featured events and opportunities include Wisconsin Partners in Policymaking, the Mosaic Art Contest, an Integrated Employment Network Event, and more.
In 2011, the BPDD started a five-year systems change project that will lead to improved community employment outcomes for youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This project – Let’s Get to Work – is already making a difference for youth in Wisconsin.
Self-advocates: Submit your original artwork for the 2012 Mosaic Art Contest! This is an art contest for self-advocates, 18 years and older, who live in Wisconsin and want to express what self-determination and/or self-advocacy means to them through their art.
This workshop connects the importance of the social/emotional relationship between parents and their children and how this relationship can provide the basis for supporting children with challenging behaviors.
