Self Determination Program

In an effort to ensure effective implementation of the Self-Determination Program, each Regional Center is required to establish a Local Advisory Committee. The Regional Center and the Regional Office of the State Council on Developmental Disabilities each appoint one-half of the membership of the committee. The committee includes consumers, family members, the regional center clients’ rights advocate, as well as other advocates and community members. The majority of the committee is comprised of consumers and family members. The committee also reflects the multicultural diversity and geographic profile of the catchment area.
