Prioritization for Urgency of Need for Services (PUNS)
PUNS is a database of Illinois children, adolescents, and adults with developmental disabilities who want or need services through the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) Division of Developmental Disabilities. For your child with a documented intellectual disability to be added to the database, a guardian must complete registration for the “PUNS List” with their local Independent Service Coordination (ISC) agency.  Residents of Lombard D44 should follow the directions online or connect with: 

Service Inc. of Illinois (Area E)
Developmental Disability Services
1919 South Highland Ave., Suite A #230
Lombard, IL 60148
Phone: (630) 425-2350

Once registered, ISC will conduct an annual update with the child's parent to plan for future service needs. It is important to register your child with a documented intellectual disability as early as possible as a person in the category of “planning for services” so there is no delay in acquiring the necessary services when the person turns 18 years of age. Lombard D44’s PUNS Liaison is Clodagh Sorrentino, Director of Special Services. Ms. Sorrentino can be reached at (630) 827-4428 or [email protected].
