Every Step of the Way Resource Center for Adults with Intellectual Disabilities

Every Step of the Way (ESW) takes a hands-on, person-centered approach to providing support, networking opportunities and resources for individuals with mild to profound intellectual disabilities ages 20 and up and their parents/caregivers. ESW seeks to create a community where parents/caregivers in Chicago can:

  • Find resources for recreation, education, health (mental and physical), social and daily living skills, and behavioral intervention services
  • Network with each other
  • Brainstorm and collaborate to create programming and develop opportunities for their adult children
  • Advocate and network to accommodate the needs of their adult child and the adult children in the ESW community
