Residential Service Provider Orientation (RSPO)

This three-day course is designed to assist potential residential service providers and administrators in the Lanterman Regional Center service area and to satisfy the requirements of Title 17 regulations.


The Transition of Day Supports: From Consumers to Producers

This is the first time we are seeing the fiduciary and regulatory authorities and the provider community come together promoting all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to have valued roles in their communities. This transition results from a revision in the rules of the HCBS Waiver, the Olmstead Act and the enhanced belief of professionals, families and self-advocates, that adults with I/DD should work and volunteer in fully-integrated community-based settings. Consequently the providers of day services and supports are facing significant changes in how to transition their current services and provide supports to achieve this transition.
