Who & How We Serve
Currently, nearly 600 Inland Regional Center staff members provide services to more than 25,000 people with developmental disabilities and their families in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Once a consumer is found eligible, he/she is paired with a Consumer Services Coordinator (CSC) who becomes their primary contact at the center. They will meet on an ongoing basis to develop an annual Individual Program Plan (IPP) that lists specific, agreed upon goals and objectives that will enhance opportunities to live more closely in line with the core values of the agency.
To better meet the needs of consumers, Inland Regional Center designed programs according to age, specialization, and geographic location. Categories include Early Start/Prevention 0-3; School Age 3-15; Transition 16-22; Adult 23-59; and Senior 60+.
If you or someone you know may qualify for services, please visit our Consumer/Families section.
What is Considered a Developmental Disability?
A developmental disability originates before the age of 18, continues or is expected to continue indefinitely, and is a substantially handicapping condition. Developmental disabilities include but are not limited to mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism and epilepsy.
According to the law, a developmental disability shall not include conditions that are solely psychiatric disabilities, solely physical disabilities, or solely learning disabilities.
