The regional center is a key point of contact for families with a
family member who has a developmental disability, however there
are many other resources available to help families navigate this
experience. Links to several of of these resources are listed
below. If you know of a good resource to add to our list,
please contact us through your Service Coordinator.
The resources listed here are specific to clients, and may be
helpful for families and professionals. They consist of
links to the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) Client
corner, links to publications developed by DDS’s Client
Advisory Committee, resources to help clients ensure their rights

ACRC develops an individualized plan for each eligible client
that identifies what services and supports will be needed to help
meet desired outcomes. This is important to understand because
while ACRC is committed to helping clients and/or their family
achieve their goals, by law, ACRC must exhaust other funding
sources, which are referred to as generic resources and natural

questions can sometimes be complex. Your Service Coordinator will
support the client and/or family in navigating these areas.
It is the mission of Alta California Regional Center to assist
persons with developmental disabilities, including infants at
risk and their families by providing and securing those services
and supports necessary to maximize opportunities and choices.
It is our belief that the principal test of the success of the
Alta California Regional Center is the extent to which it
enhances the quality of individual and family life and improves
the client’s and the family’s satisfaction with the services
received from or through the Regional Center.
