Delegation from Japan Visits Lanterman to Learn About Regional Center Service Delivery System
In early December, a delegation from the Ōita Prefecture, a prefecture of Japan on Kyūshū Island, visited Lanterman Regional Center.
The group consisted of 12 assembly members who were here to study California's developmental disabilities service delivery system.
The visit to Lanterman was facilitated with the help of Mariko Magami from the Japanese Speaking Parents Association of Children with Challenges Support Group.
Rose Chacana from Lanterman's Koch-Young Resource Center shares, "Over the years, Mariko has been instrumental in connecting Japanese officials with Lanterman Regional Center to learn about our system of care."
The group also presented Lanterman Executive Director Melinda Sullivan with a good luck figure.
