Community Meeting for Service Providers on Sept. 7 to Address Changes to Regional Centers and Services, and Potential Effects

Each year, Lanterman Regional Center hosts community meetings to provide our key partners – individuals with developmental disabilities, their families and our service providers – the opportunity to give us feedback on the future direction and long‐term goals of the Center.

This partnership is only successful when all parties involved have an opportunity to participate, and one avenue utilized by the Center to ensure that all persons interested in participating are able to is at our annual community meetings. 

A portion of this year’s meetings will include a review of all of the changes to the regional center service system enacted through the various budget trailer bills of the last two years and how the legislative changes may affect clients and families. Also covered will be the following topics that will address the present state of Lanterman Regional Center:

- Budget overview for fiscal year 2011‐12
- Changes to the performance plan for 2012
- Achievements from the 2011 performance plan
