What happens at an Individualized Program Plan (IPP) meeting?

Published: Mar. 4, 2022Updated: Mar. 17, 2022

The meeting can be held at the Regional Center, or the service coordinator can come to your home or another place that is convenient for you.

At the meeting, you and the Regional Center service coordinator will discuss your child’s needs and goals, specific concerns you may have about your child’s development, and what services you receive from other resources. You will also discuss Regional Center–funded services that may be appropriate for your child. For a young school-aged child, available services might include social skills and behavioral interventions (including ABA in some cases), copayment assistance, respite care, day care services for working parents, support groups and conferences, and diapering and medical supplies, among others.

Services provided by the Regional Center through the IPP are based on the goals and objectives you list for your child, so if you plan to request particular services, be sure that they are supported by your child’s goals.
