REGIONAL CENTER FUNDING

The State of California through the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS) recognizes the need for support and services for individuals diagnosed with developmental disabilities. These disabilities include mental retardation, Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism and related conditions. DDS distributes funds to Regional centers who in turn vendors with outside agencies to provide a wide range of services including ABA. In STEPPS is a vendor of Regional Center of Orange County, and South Los Angeles Regional Center.

Funding by Regional Centers is expected to change dramatically in the next year as a result of the insurance mandate. Please contact us for more information on how this may effect your family.
