Module 4: Getting Started

This module reviews the Coordinated Services Teams Initiative eligibility criteria as well as identifying practical steps a care coordinator can do once they receive notice that a child and family have been approved as eligible for CST care. These include tasks and skills that can be used in any wraparound process.

Takeaway Points

Wisconsin Stat. § 46.56, which governs CST, says that county and tribal coordinating committees have the responsibility of identifying policies and practices related to eligibility criteria.  

There are guidelines and step-by-step tasks which care coordinators can use in the beginning stages of working with a child and family team that guide such things as gathering information, contacting the family, preparation for meeting with the family, and contacting potential team members.
