The desire to be heard and acknowledged by those around us is universal.

All of us have a story to tell, and our clients are no different. Since 1989, the staff of Suburban Access has advocated for individuals with intellectual disabilities. We work hard every day so that these amazing individuals can receive acknowledgment, assistance, and access to life-changing services. We do this work so that their stories may not only continue, but be extraordinary.

CHILD AND FAMILY CONNECTIONS

These opportunities, information, and referral services are the starting point for all children who are under the age of three and who may have developmental delays.

INDEPENDENT SERVICE COORDINATION

Our specially trained coordinators partner with families who have a member who has a intellectual disability, our provider agencies, and the Department of Human Services to develop individualized service plans, to arrange for delivery of services, and to ensure access to services. Assistance is available from the individual’s birth throughout his/her adulthood.

pre-admission screening

Our coordinators complete comprehensive assessments and provide documentation to verify that a person has a developmental disability and meets the criteria for state-funded services. Our staff works with the individual and his/her family to develop and implement a plan to access the needed services and support.

PRIORITIZATION OF URGENCY OF NEED FOR SERVICES (PUNS)

To receive services in the state of Illinois, individuals who have intellectual disabilities must be enrolled in the PUNS database. Our coordinators can assist with enrollment.

INDIVIDUAL SERVICE AND SUPPORT ADVOCACY

Our staff meets quarterly with an individual who has an intellectual disability and his/her family to review service plans and programs, to determine if needs are being met, and to ensure that the services provided are person-centered and address the individual’s desired goals.
