October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) part of a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment. We've compiled flyers for various employment resources. This compilation is by no means comprehensive. We'll add opportunities and resources as we become informed of them.

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.
