standards

[I] make no pretense of being the last word on the subject of autistic children. …more appropriate to call it one of the first words.

Renovations and Expectations
Work in progress

Work in progress

Renovations are currently underway at our community-based residence in Des Plaines South. We have completed demolition of the kitchen, rear bathroom, and rear bedroom, and we enjoy seeing the daily progress as contractors integrate the Rimland standards into this home. Once the renovation is complete, the residence will feature an open kitchen that facilitates a continuous flow of interaction between staff members and residents, durable and sustainable porcelain flooring throughout, new bathrooms with walk-in showers and wall-mounted body sprays, and a redesigned living room layout allowing for a more functional use of the space.
