Transition to Self-Determination

Based on the principles of freedom, authority, support, responsibility and confirmation, this opportunity provides individuals with authentic and meaningful choice and control over their services and supports, and therefore their lives.


Coaching & Supports for  Participants & Families
Transitioning into Self-Determination

  In 2020, Education Spectrum was awarded grants from the San Gabriel Pomona Regional Center's Local Volunteer Advisory Committee to assist participants and families who were interested in the Self-Determination Program. In 2022, we began training staff and stakeholders at the North Bay Regional Center, as well as providing translative services. We have assembled a number of experienced professionals to help participants and families make informed, person-centered choices. Collaborative trainings and step-by-step assistance is offered in a variety of modalities in order to meet the diverse needs of our community.
