Illinois Service Resource Center (ISRC)

The Illinois Service Resource Center provides behavior support for students who are deaf or hard of hearing in Illinois. Behavior support can be for individual students with challenges, or at the preventive level with classrooms or school programs. ISRC serves students with hearing loss regardless of communication mode.

ISRC provides free training, onsite assistance and resources for parents and educators of students who are deaf or hard of hearing. ISRC team members visit homes and schools to work with families and educators in developing positive behavior support plans for DHH students in need of intensive level supports. ISRC team members work with DHH programs and classrooms to develop positive behavior support plans that teach appropriate expected behaviors for all students.

ISRC is a component of the Illinois Statewide Technical Assistance Collaborative (ISTAC) funded by the Illinois State Board of Education. Behavior support is provided at all three tiers of the Response to Intervention model, at the program-wide, classroom-wide, and individual student levels, corresponding to the Universal, Targeted, and Individualized/Tertiary levels of service.
