Person-Centered Thinking

RCOC is committed to providing person-centered services to those we serve. Our vision is that every person served by RCOC is a valued member of the community and achieves his or her individual potential. We do this by promoting a person-centered approach to the IPP process, to the way we engage in meetings, and to the way we engage with each other as an organization. Every employee who works at RCOC receives a 2-day training in Person-Centered Thinking and learns creative ways to gather meaningful information, problem solve, and action plan.

This list of service providers (vendors) are approved to provide services and supports to RCOC clients and families.  Service providers are listed according to the type of service they provide.  Locations and telephone numbers, and in some cases staffing ratios, are also included.

All of California’s regional centers are required to be the “payor of last resort” for any service or support that a person with developmental disabilities might need.  This means that if a service is available through another source, including “generic resources” that – like public schools – are mandated to serve the general population, the regional center is prohibited by law from paying for that service.

To help clients and parents of children with developmental disabilities access local agencies and organizations that may be able to meet their needs, Regional Center of Orange County has prepared these lists of resources, which include description of services, eligibility and contact information.
