Is your loved one a regional center client? Do you want to hear about a program that may bring them more freedom of choice and independence before and after their transition to adulthood?

The Self-Determination Program (SDP) provides individuals and their families with more control and responsibility in choosing services and supports to help them meet their life’s goals. The SDP is available to all eligible individuals receiving services from a regional center.

Please join an SDP representative from the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) as they:
– Explain what the SDP provides participants
– Introduce the 5 principles of self-determination: freedom, authority, support, responsibility, confirmation​
– Discuss how to begin your SDP journey
– Describe the transition process from traditional services to the SDP

A representative from the Office of the SDP Ombudsperson will also participate in the discussion.

This is a Connections California event. Connections California is a project of Parents Helping Parents – Silicon Valley.
