I received this from another Autism Mom. I believe it was completed by a therapy center here in town, but this is the best outline I have found on each and every program/benefit you will need as you embark on this autism journey. It is long but mighty.
This goes into detail about protective supervison and has some helpful responses and advice to help aide you with your cases.
When my Notice of Action came, they had a letter attached letting me know I could appeal and go before a judge and bring a representative of my choosing to the hearing. It also had these numbers for FREE Legal Help with your appeal. I called one of these two numbers and got FREE LEGAL HELP. My hours went from 30.53 a month to 282 hours a month.
Regional centers are nonprofit private corporations that contract with the Department of Developmental Services to provide or coordinate services and supports for individuals with developmental disabilities. They have offices throughout California to provide a local resource to help find and access the many services available to individuals and their families.
