The Self-Determination Program (SDP) is an alternative way for the Regional Center (RC) to pay for services that are chosen by the individual and may be good option for individuals who would like more flexibility regarding the services they are receiving or who may be wanting a different experience than those offered via traditional SARC services.
In the Self-Determination Program, the participant is given more control over how their allocated money is spent at the cost of additional responsibility for the individual and their support systems. It accomplishes this by giving the participant the option to use both agencies who are vendors of the Regional Center, as well as agencies or persons who are not RC vendors. The flexibility of choosing services offers more opportunity for the individual to live their lives as they determine.
All Orientations are offered both in English and the language specified (if any).
