The Self-Determination Program
The Self-Determination Program, in California, provides regional centers consumers and their families with more control and flexibility over the services and support they need. The first step is creating a Person-Centered Plan. The process is directed by the individual and/or their family to identify the strengths, preferences, needs, and desired outcomes. The next step is the process of creating an individual budget, followed by a spending plan.
I am certified as an Independent Facilitator (IF) for Person-Centered Planning (PCP). I have supported more than 20 individuals through the Self-Determination process in four Regional Centers.
