Services

Who we are and what we provide.
The Central Valley Regional Center is a private, nonprofit corporation funded by the state of California to provide services to persons with developmental disabilities.

What are developmental disabilities?
"Developmental disabilities," as defined in state law, include mental retardation, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and autism, in addition to conditions similar to mental retardation or requiring similar treatment.

Who is eligible for assessment?
Anyone who is suspected of having a developmental delay or disability, or anyone who is at risk of parenting a developmentally disabled child.

How are referrals made?
Referrals may be made by parents, doctors, teachers, relatives, friends, or individuals themselves. Parents or guardians of minors must give approval for the referral.

What services are provided?
The Center provides diagnosis, evaluation, and case management through its own staff. It also acts as a "coordinator" of services, which are available to the developmentally disabled from other agencies in the community. The Center does not provide all services. Many are purchased from specialists or agencies in the community.

Charges
Diagnostic and case management services are provided without cost to the family. Families may be asked to reimburse the Regional Center for a portion of all other services according to their ability to pay.
