Self Determination Program
California's Self-Determination Program became available to all regional center participants July 1, 2021.
California's Self-Determination Program (SDP) provides individuals with autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, intellectual disabilities, and other developmental disabilities and their families with more control and flexibility over the services and supports they need. Self-determination is a voluntary regional center program that provides participants with an individual budget, which they can use to purchase the services and supports they need to implement their own person-centered plan.
Autism Support Community provides support through independent facilitation to assist participants to transition into the Self Determination Program at no cost to the participant or family.
