Self Determination Program

In October of 2013, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed into law the Self-Determination Program (SDP), 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 (DDS, 2021). SDP is available to San Diego Regional Center Clients as of July 2021. For more information send an email to and talk with your Service Coordinator.
