Caldwell, Joe; Lopez, Erick; DeBrine, Elizabeth; Factor, Alan; Heller, Tamar; Ennis, Donna
Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Aging with Developmental Disabilities
This updated guide helps families navigate the maze of adult services and supports for individuals with developmental disabilities. It responds to families' need for a centralized source of information that describes adult services and how to access them. Content includes an overview of the service system and information on legal and financial planning, vocational and residential services, community supports, recreation and leisure opportunities, transportation, and advocacy. Information is in a user-friendly, question-and-answer format that was recommended by families. The guide is a template that other communities can follow in providing information on local services. Appended are: (1) Application for the Illinois Home Based Support Services Program; and (2) Letter of Intent Document. [Additional funding for this paper was provided by the Illinois Department on Aging.]
