Illinois Parents of Adults with Developmental Disabilities

BRIAN MACKEY / NPR ILLINOIS

The group Illinois Parents of Adults with Developmental Disabilities has published its first legislative report card.

Deb Hamilton cares for her 27-year old disabled daughter, who lives at home in the Chicago suburbs.

"I am hoping it will influence legislators' behavior, I'm hoping it will bring awareness to the specific cause itself, but also to create an awareness of what is really happening in Springfield," Hamilton said.
