Programs for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities. Revised.
Sizemore, C. J.
This publication describes the programs and services offered through the Office of Developmental Disabilities of the Illinois Department of Human Services. Introductory information includes an overview of supports and service, a definition of "developmental disability," and a guide to the publication. This is followed by a description of funding methods: grant-funded, Medicaid, or purchase-of-service. Program definitions are then provided for 21 support services (such as "independent service coordination" and "developmental training") and for 10 residential services (e.g., "community living facility,""supported living arrangement"). Codes provide additional information on funding eligibility and agency provider. Also provided is an Illinois map with counties and agencies, a map of Chicago and agencies, and a listing of agencies. An appended chart lists required documents for purchase-of-service initial funding by individual program. (DB)
