Description

This is part of our "Casual Conversations" Series

Our service system is facing many significant changes over the next several years. These "conversations" are an opportunity to learn about and discuss the proposals or directions in the regional center system you may have heard about. We encourage you to spend some time with us in a constructive dialogue.

SELF-DETERMINATION PROGRAM- what is it and when will it start?

Governor Brown signed a new program into law in 2013. Since that time we all have been waiting for federal approval which would allow a three year pilot of self determination to begin. People would be allocated a specific amount of money which would allow them to have more flexibility in purchasing services they need.

This conversation will discuss what self determination means, what the basic elements of the program are, and how you can be considered for the three year pilot.

HOST and PRESENTER:

Laura Larson, Executive Director Far Northern Regional Center

Melissa Gruhler, Associate Director of Client Services Far Northern Regional Center
