Self-Determination Program

California’s Self-Determination Program was developed by DDS to provide qualified regional center individuals and their families with more control and flexibility over the services and supports they need. One of the ways this can be done is by giving participants a specific budget to purchase the services and supports they need. Participants and families may purchase services from traditional providers or local businesses, hire support workers directly, and negotiate unique arrangements with groups and individuals in their communities.
