Why Wraparound?

 By:  Jon Randol, Clinical Coordinator, Clermont County Family & Children First

The Clermont FAST TRAC wraparound program, provided through Clermont County Family and Children First, is a unique planning process for children, adolescents and families. The process is designed to emphasize family voice and choice in the decision making process. Each family has a team made up of professional and natural supports that they have selected to help identify needs and develop strategies for meeting them.  The process uses collaboration to effectively support the family as they learn new skills for managing the many issues that can surface in life. The plans are individualized and use individual and family strengths to help accomplish the identified outcomes. Whenever possible, services and meetings are conducted in the family’s home and community.  All plans have measurable outcomes, so that progress on meeting needs and goals can be monitored.  Each family’s culture, is identified, respected and used to help achieve results.

To access this process, a family must meet some minimal criteria, which is being a resident of Clermont County, the referred child/adolescent must have a mental health diagnosis and the child must be between the ages of 3 and 21 at the time of referral. Anyone can refer a child and family to wraparound. We have received numerous self referrals as well as referrals from Juvenile Court, Children’s Protective Services, Board of Developmental Disabilities and school districts.  You may make a referral by filling out a Wraparound referral form located on the FAST TRAC website at http://clermontfasttrac.org or by calling Jon Randol at 732-5413.
