WISe/Wraparound is a team based planning process for youth with complex needs and their families designed to help produce better outcomes for youth so that they can live in their homes and communities and realize their hopes and dreams.
- A team of individuals who are relevant to the well-being of a youth (family members, service providers, school staff, community members, and natural supports) will be developed;
- This team will collaboratively develop and implement an individualized plan of care, monitor the efficacy of the plan, and work towards success over time.
