Self Determination Advisory Cmte Meeting Minutes
What is the Self Determination Program? (SDP)
In October of 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed into law the Self-Determination Program, which will provide consumers and their families with more freedom, control, and responsibility in choosing services and supports to help them meet objectives in their Individual Program Plan. For a very brief summary of the SDP, click here. If you would like more information, go to the Department of Development Services web site for Self Determination Updates.
Attached is a list of UCI Numbers. These numbers are associated with the consumers and families that have indicated to their Service Coordinator that they are interested in being considered for the Self Determination Program. If you do not see your UCI# listed, and you are want to be part of the program, or you thought you had already told them you were interested, please contact your Service Coordinator again and tell them you are interested the Self Determination Program. They will add your interest in your IPP either through an IPP addendum, or when you do your annual IPP.
Consumers chosen for the program will be chosen by DDS using a matrix that includes diagnosis, ethnicity, age, geographic location, and possibly other criteria as well. Then if chosen, the consumer and family can either be a part of the program, or decline if circumstances have changed.
