This set of policy statements of the Illinois Planning Council on Developmental Disabilities, adopted from 1989 through 1990, documents Council philosophies and beliefs about issues impacting persons with developmental disabilities and their families. The value standard guiding all Council policies, plans, practices, grants, and advocacy is consideration of the question: "Would I willingly accept this for myself or any of my family members who are disabled?" Specific statements address the following areas: the offender who is developmentally disabled; transition from school to adult life; the role of education in preparing students with developmental disabilities for adulthood; employment; least restrictive environment; care and treatment of infants with developmental disabilities; child care; transportation; persons with developmental disabilities and the use of psychotropic drugs; employment and income support; family support; Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS); case management; community living; early intervention; free and appropriate public education; prevention; and use of severe punishment or adversives with persons with developmental disabilities.
