Budget season begins
OK, sort of.  Governor Quinn's Budget Address won't come until late March, but articles have begun.  Much will depend on whether the temporary tax increase, set to expire at the end of this year, is extended or not.  It seems doubtful we'll find out until the lame duck session following the November elections.  So, we'll probably end up with a budget of which we can be confident for only the f...

In case it should be a use, a link to a toolkit to support physicians in effectively communicating with adults who have intellectual disabilities.

Today’s Article
Awesome article today on Mandi.  Don't miss her booth at Food for Thought Saturday!!!
Front Page News
Awesome article in The Times today, part of a series running all week long as we lead up to Food for Thought this Saturday.
Around the building today
Lots going on today...paint, salt bags, belts, dip tubes, someone just walked in with some shredding, new bubble lamps in one of the classrooms, things growing in the garden, the new smart TVs....  It's a nice day today.    
Reprieve
As termed by this article, the "reprieve" has been lovely for SU.  This temporary catch-up of past-due state payments, coupled with a few beautifully-timed and generous donations, has allowed us to take care of some things in need of attention:  paint and flooring for Fitzsimmons and Ralph Plumb, improvement of our garden area out back of the main building, some classroom supplies, and more comm...
The Presentation
Our own Ben Dagay and Sherri Stephens traveled down to Springfield yesterday.   They were asked by the Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities to be speakers at the State of Illinois Interagency Committee on Employees with Disabilities Awards Ceremony.  Ben talked about his job at the State Police Headquarters in LaSalle-Peru.  He was a knowledgeable and entertaining speaker.  He's hol...
Survey Says
Today our state surveyor showed up unannounced at 8:30 for the annual review of our Developmental Training Program.  They look at a wide variety of things...policies, consumer files, staff files, the physical building, governance, and do interviews with consumers and direct care staff.  It went very well.  We got a 99% score.  A scan of the survey report is on our Documents and Reports page.
Busy day
Spring is a busy time here at SU...among many other things today: John got a long and arduous grant request for a new vehicle off his desk;       Kyle cranked out some dip tubes for one of our customers;         Allen planted trees;         Jalapeno pepper plants are will hopefully lead us to a ...
