Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities Act. Requires the Department of Human Services to operate and maintain the Illinois Center for Rehabilitation and Education for the care and education of educable young adults (rather than children) with one or more physical disabilities and provide in connection therewith nursing and medical care and academic, occupational, and related training to such young adults (rather than children). Provides that any Illinois resident under the age of 22 (rather than 21) years who is educable but has such a severe physical disability or other cause that he or she is unable to take advantage of the system of free education in the State of Illinois, may be admitted to the Center or other specified facilities. Defines "Director" and deletes the definition of "vocational rehabilitation administrator". Amends the School Code. Provides that if the child is deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, or diagnosed with an orthopedic impairment or physical disability and he or she might be eligible to receive services from the Illinois Center for Rehabilitation and Education, the school district shall notify the parents, in writing, of the existence of the school and the services provided and shall make a reasonable effort to inform the parents of the existence of other, local schools that provide similar services and the services that these other schools provide.
