Sensory-Based Support: A Workshop for Parents with Children Birth to 5
As a parent, have you ever wondered…
Why does my child move differently from other kids?
Why does he spin around or bump into things?
Why does he tune out or seem disturbed in certain environments?
Why does his mood change rapidly or unpredictably?
Why won’t he touch or taste certain things?
These are all sensory-based struggles that many of our children face. Come attend a two-hour workshop to learn more about the cause of some of these challenges as well as various strategies to help our children regulate their bodies and movements, and increase tolerance to sensitivities. Gain ideas you can incorporate in daily life and playtime with your child who is between the ages of birth to 5. There will be a PowerPoint, hands-on activities and discussion.
Contact the Koch-Young Resource Center at 213.252.5600 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Reserve your space before Wednesday, May 29, 2013.

As part of the Department of Developmental Services' (DDS) commitment to provide information to the general public, individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, and professionals in the field, DDS produces the Fact Book on an annual basis. The Fact Book presents pertinent data over a 10-year period about the individuals served by DDS, including an overview of the service delivery system and trends in California. The Fact Book contains valuable information that is helpful in better understanding California’s developmental services system and the people served.
The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) monitors the actions and efforts of regional centers to ensure they meet statutory, regulatory and contractual obligations, and uphold the values of the Lanterman Act, the legislation guiding the developmental services system in California.
For more information on DDS' monitoring activities, visit the Regional Center Oversight Dashboard on the DDS Web site and click on the oversight functions. Oversight functions include:

2016 Disparity Data on Purchased Services Report Now Online
California law and regulation requires that regional centers display on their Web sites information about the dollar value of services they purchase for clients. These data (called "purchase of service" or "POS" data) must be reported separately by clients' ethnic/racial group, langauge and diagnosis.
