Targeted Truancy Intervention Services (TTI)

 

Collaborative Wraparound Services:

 

The Targeted Truancy Intervention (TTI) Program utilizes recognized teambuilding and wraparound values and philosophies. This valuable team approach strives to provide an intensive individualized approach to bring the strengths of the family, community and existing supportive programming together to address family needs and work towards common goals.   

 

A dedicated team works with the family for an average of twelve months to discover the strengths, establish goals, identify significant needs and develop strength-based options. The TTI Program provides a Collaborative Services Coordinator from Family Youth Interaction, offers a Parent Peer Specialist from Wisconsin Family Ties and an active team working together in an intensive wraparound fashion. Additional supports that the family would like to include in this process such as social workers, family members, clergy, community members and school personnel are all brought together and added to the team.

 

Each family’s team will work together to consider a variety of actions in order to meet identified needs throughout a family’s involvement. The TTI Program focuses efforts on addressing academic, attendance, and behavioral challenges within a team approach.
