Self-Determination Program Local Advisory Committee

What is Self-Determination?

In October of 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed into law the Self-Determination Program, which will provide consumers and their families with more freedom, control, and responsibility in choosing services and supports to help them meet objectives in their Individual Program Plan.

As required by law, each regional center must establish a Local Volunteer Advisory Committee to ensure effective implementation of the Self-Determination Program and facilitate the sharing of best practices and training materials. Members of these committees are appointed by the regional center and the Regional Office of the State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD). The committee members must include consumers, family members, the regional center clients’ rights advocate, other advocates and community leaders, and must reflect the multicultural diversity and geographic profile of the catchment area.

The Local Advisory Committee meets the first Monday of the month (unless there is a holiday) at 6:30 PM at the Regional Center of Orange County, 1525 North Tustin Avenue, Santa Ana, CA 92702.
