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.
Network of Care - Service Providers/Vendored Resources
As part of the requirement of SB 74, per WIC 4629.5(b)(6) regional centers are required to make available a listing of our service providers/vendored resources, including name, type of service and contact information. This information was included on Lanterman's Network of Care site, which is a listing of community-based resources for children and adults that are close to where you live.
This database not only includes resources that integrate children and adults with developmental disabilities into regular programming and activities with their non-disabled peers, but also includes specialized programs serving only people with developmental disabilities.
Our objective in listing all of these resources in one site is to better inform the Individualized Planning Process (IPP). Your family member’s IPP is the guide to the services and supports that he or she will need. The Network of Care gives clients and families direct access to the resources that are available. When more than one resource is available that may meet your family member’s needs, your service coordinator can help you make an informed choice in accordance with the Regional Center’s service standards.
