“Jan Upton and Mary Shimel look forward a few times a year to a new puppy coming to live at their homes — blank slates, so to speak, ready to learn. Autism service dogs are trained beginning at 8 to 10 weeks of age. Upton and Shimel get the puppies and will spend 6 to 8 weeks putting the dogs through basic training — much of the same training that happens with any puppy new to a family.” – Kathy Fuller, The Hillsboro Argus

A bill called the Service Dog Access Act has been introduced by the Illinois General Assembly.
It amends the school code to permit “…a service animal to accompany a student with a disability at all school functions, whether in or outside the classroom…”.
The text explicitly includes “…autism service dogs in the list of animals that must be allowed access to a public place of accommodation…”
Amends the School Code. In provision permitting a service animal to accompany a student with a disability at all school functions, whether in or outside the classroom, defines “service animal” to include an animal trained or being trained as: a hearing animal; a guide animal; an assistance animal; a seizure alert animal; a mobility animal; a psychiatric service animal; or an autism service animal. Provides that reasonable accommodations must be sought for the use of a service animal to accompany a student with a disability at all school functions, whether in or outside the classroom (rather than the service animal being permitted at all school functions). Amends the Guide Dog Access Act. Changes the title of the Act to the Service Dog Access Act. Includes mobility, psychiatric service, and autism service dogs in the list of animals that must be allowed access to a public place of accommodation if such dog is wearing a harness, backpack, or vest identifying the dog as a trained service dog and such person presents credentials for inspection issued by a school for training guide, leader, seizure-alert, seizure-response, or autism service dogs. Effective immediately.
You can follow the progress of this bill at the Illinois General Assembly website.
