Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (Wraparound)

These are home, community, or school based services for children and adolescents with serious emotional or behavioral problems.

"Wraparound" is the informal term for Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS). It is a highly individualized family and child-centered service providing intensive counseling and behavioral management services to meet the needs of children from birth to 21 years of age.

Wraparound is normally a Medical Assistance-Funded
program providing trained professional support for children to reduce or replace problem behaviors with positive, socially or developmentally appropriate behaviors.  If your child has a diagnosis in the autism spectrum, then private insurance, if applicable, will often pay for services.

                     FuncGardentional Beahavioral Assessments
Functional behavior assessment (FBA) is a systematic set of strategies that is used to determine the underlying function or purpose of a behavior, so that an effective intervention plan can be developed. FBA consists of describing the interfering or problem behavior, identifying antecedent or consequent events that control the behavior, developing a hypothesis of the behavior, and testing the hypothesis. Data collection is an important part of the FBA process. Often, teachers/practitioners use functional communication training (FCT), differential reinforcement, response interruption/redirection, extinction, and stimulus control/environmental modification to address these 
behaviors in learners with ASD.
