MAPS & PATHS are planning processes that help individuals identify their goals. These models take the individual from the dream stage to the positive and practical application of making their dreams into reality. Both processes depend heavily on the development of natural supports. The difference between this and a wrap-around services plan is that wrap services depend on government funded agency provided supports. For example a latchkey child might get funded for after school recreational activities, whereas a child/family using the MAPS/PATHS model might arrange for a circle of friends for support after school. Many of us have access to natural supports which can help us access the quality of life community inclusion can offer. For more information on this topic, please go to Inclusion Press.
