Description: This training session will provide an overview of the systems, data, and practices of the wraparound process as a Tier 3/Tertiary Level Intervention. Primary focus will be on increasing implementers' knowledge and fluency with the wraparound process, including development of individual teams and plans that are strength-based and tailored to the comprehensive need of each student/family. Emphasis will be given to the intensive, comprehensive wraparound process of supporting and planning for the "whole child" & "whole family." Each implementer will then practice the initiation of wraparound planning for one or more students. Focus will be on team engagement, translating family/student and teacher(s) stories into baseline data via the SIMEO system, and designing strength-based interventions. Objectives include:

  1. Interpret data to determine which students are in need of wraparound.

  2. Learn how to develop and facilitate effective Wraparound Teams with individual students and their families through skill sets (i.e., hearing stories, strength assessment, identifying big needs, etc.).

  3. Understand the steps for designing a wraparound action plan with student/family/teacher to address needs across home, school, and community following four (4) Phases of Wraparound.

  4. Practice how to integrate use of strength- and needs-based data tools into all four Phases of Wraparound.

  5. Learn how to use data for decision making and on-going progress monitoring.

  6. Action Plan: decide who will be trained on SIMEO and plan next steps for initiating a wraparound meeting with 1-3 students/families in need of wraparound.
