Illinois Epilepsy Support and Resources
At Illinois Epilepsy Support and Resources, we are proud to provide services to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Though the diagnoses for those we serve vary, 42% of our clients have received an epilepsy diagnosis.
Whether or not there are other accompanying disabilities, these people need our services because of the way epilepsy impacts their lives.
Our services cover a wide range of needs for those with epilepsy including:
Community Integrated Living Arrangement (CILA) support
Community Developmental Services (CDS) coordination with individuals and families
Center-based vocational training program for qualifying individuals
Employer support and accommodation services for employees with epilepsy
Thanks to our history of providing services, we are uniquely equipped to support consumers during a lifetime of development as they grow, age, gain skills, adjust to medication changes, and face the many challenges of life.
Epilepsy is a chronic disorder that causes unprovoked, recurrent seizures. A seizure is a sudden rush of electrical activity in the brain.
