Wraparound is a voluntary program designed to help families who have children with emotional and/or behavioral challenges. Wraparound teams are made of caring professionals, friends and family who use Wraparound principles to meet the needs of families.
Participants in Indiana's Wraparound Program are supported with a variety of services such as Family Support Training, Habilitation and Respite that are designed to support Participants to move closer to reaching their Family Vision. Those services are provided in a strengths-based manner and are designed to respect the participant's personal beliefs and customs. Services will be developed based upon identified outcomes on the Plan of Care (POC). The IPMG Wraparound Facilitator will ensure that the Participant supported has the information needed to provide meaningful supports, creating a POC that encompasses those services.
Specifically, the Wraparound program is meant to assist a person to:
- Become integrated in the community where he/she lives and works or goes to school
- Develop supportive relationships in the communities
- Develop skills to make more positive decisions about behavior and/or lifestyle choices
- Improve family interaction and communication skills
