Project Summary: 

The Wraparound Fidelity Assessment System (WFAS) is a multi-method approach to assessing the quality of individualized care planning and management for children and youth with complex needs and their families. WFAS instruments include interviews with multiple stakeholders, a team observation measure, and an instrument to assess the level of system support for wraparound. The instruments that comprise the WFAS can be used individually or, to provide a more comprehensive assessment, in combination with one another.
