School-Based Wraparound and Its Connection to Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports: A Component of Safe/Effective Schools for All Students.
Eber, Lucille
Wraparound is a family-centered, strength-based philosophy of care used to guide service planning for students with Emotional and Behavioral Disabilities (EBD) and their families. Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a systems approach for establishing effective behavior supports for all students in schools. The wraparound process focuses on improving options and outcomes for students with or at-risk of emotional and behavioral problems by building collaborative teams around students, their families, and teachers. This strength-based process blends natural supports with creative application of interventions and services from multiple service providers. Experiences suggest that systematic application of wraparound process can increase the likelihood that appropriate supports and interventions, including research-based behavioral and instructional interventions are effectively implemented. Wraparound fits in the context of positive behavioral supports for all students and is being implemented as part of school-wide positive discipline systems in schools across the country. This paper describes the wraparound process and its application directly in schools, and connections between wraparound and a school-wide systems approach to supporting prosocial behavior in all students.
