Public Meetings to be Held Regarding Purchase of Services Differences on March 26

Lanterman Regional Center will be hosting two public meetings on Wednesday, March 26, 2014, one in Spanish at 10 a.m. and one in English at 7 p.m., at the regional center. During the meetings we will be reviewing data on the disparity in purchased services for Lanterman clients related to age, race, primary language, and disability.

These meetings are held, as they were for the first time last year, to comply with (Welfare & Institutions Code, 4519.5) that calls for the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and regional centers to annually compile data relating to purchase of service authorization, utilization and expenditure, and report with respect to several indicators including age, race, language and disability. Each year,  this data will be compiled and posted by the regional center  by December 31st  for the prior fiscal year with public meetings to be held by the following March 31st.
