Wraparound Family Services (WFS) provides Educational Services to families with children with developmental disabilities (age 3-22). Funding is provided by the Massachusetts Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the Dept. of Developmental Services under Massachusetts law Chapter 766.

These services are provided primarily to assist families in supporting their child at home and in the community. In collaboration with the child’s School System, Team evaluations and Annual Reviews are conducted to develop an ongoing individual education plan that ensures an appropriate education, and promotes increased independence and adaptive skills. Children are assessed for their needs, and then receive an annual grant which is used for in-home teacher/trainer staffing and other educational and therapeutic services.
