Self-Determination Q&A: The Essentials and What You Can Do Now

Jun. 23, 2021Updated Jul. 1, 2022

In less than a month, the Self-Determination Program will be available to all Regional Center clients! How successful the statewide rollout will be remains to be seen, but we do know that July 1st will mark a major milestone for the program and an important shift for many families throughout California.

As this date approaches, many families are gathering information to learn more about the Self-Determination process — and understandably have a lot of questions. On May 27th, we held an informative Q&A session via Facebook Live with our own Independent Facilitator and Person-Centered Planner, Carla Lehmann, who walked us through the essentials of the Self-Determination program and what we can do now. If you missed the event and would like to watch (or re-watch) the presentation, you can view the full recording here:
