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.
Network of Care
On Lanterman’s Network of Care site you will find a listing of community-based resources for children and adults. The resources on the site are searchable by several criteria, including by category of the resource, and location/area.
The initial groups of resources we are making available primarily focus on social/recreational, preschool and day care options. As the site continues to grow, we will be adding additional resources in other categories, such as medical, dental and transportation.
This site is designed to only include resources that integrate children and adults with developmental disabilities into regular programming and activities with their non-disabled peers. Specialized programs serving only people with developmental disabilities are not listed.
