Ed McManus will speak at 7pm tonight at Protected Tomorrows LifeCare Center, 103 Schelter Rd, Lincolnshire. He will discuss Illinois services for individuals with special needs. Topics include the PUNS list, the Ligas Consent Decree, the role of PAS agencies in delivering services. The event is free, but registration is requested (847-522-8086).
Ed recently retired from the Illinois Division of Developmental Disabilities. His career spanned several agencies including Staff Attorney for the Office of the Inspector General, State Coordinator for the Home-Based Services Program, and much more. Currently he consults with agencies and families trying to navigate the system. Ed’s newsletters can be found at his facebook page, where he states: “Our main focus is to provide a better understanding of the Illinois DD system, which continues to mystify providers and families alike because it is so complex.”
This event is a kickoff for the new Protected Tomorrows Family Membership program. Details are on the website.
