The purpose of Parent Peer Specialist services is to empower parents by increasing their knowledge and skills, model behavior for others, provide hope for change and growth, assist in advocacy and teamwork, navigate service and support systems, encourage and understand the youth’s voice, and provide peer support through the shared parenting experience.
The mission of Rocky Hill is to provide hope, support, education, and advocacy to parents of children with mental health and substance use issues.
The curriculum has been created at two levels. The severe level is meant for students with significant intellectual and developmental disabilities. This level is a flip book made with one side being a picture and the other side being instruction guidance for the adult.
The mild/moderate curriculum is appropriate for students who can read, but need more specific instruction or a reminder course. This level is differentiated to accommodate learners who struggle to complete tables and longer writing assignments.
Additionally, consulting and training for the curriculum is available.
Individual skill development services are provided through a WI CCS Service Plan.
This service includes training in communication, interpersonal skills, problem solving, decision-making, self-regulation, conflict resolution, and other specific needs identified in the member’s service plan. Services also include training in daily living skills related to personal care, household tasks, financial management, transportation, shopping, parenting, accessing and connecting to community resources and services (including health care services), and other specific daily living needs identified in the member’s service plan.
Services provided to children focus on improving integration into and interaction with the minor’s family, school, community, and other social networks. Services include assisting the child's family in gaining skills to assist the child with individual skill development and enhancement.
