 Since 1997, the Regional Center of Orange County (RCOC) has hosted an annual event called the Spotlight Awards to recognize people and organizations who stand out as role models of selfless service and dedicated advocacy in working with people with developmental disabilities, such as intellectual disability, autism, cerebral palsy, and epilepsy.

You all know a person, group, or organization that deserves recognition! 

The Regional Center of Orange County’s Spotlight Awards is one way to acknowledge their contributions to improving the lives of people with developmental disabilities in Orange County.
