If you cannot go to the regional center because of your disability, the staff must visit you at home. Federal law (including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and its regulations) gives you the right to this kind of “accommodation.”Title 29 U.S. Code section 794; Title 45 Code of Fed. Regs., section 84.22(b). This right applies to all public agencies that provide benefits or services, including In-Home Supportive Services (IHSS), Social Security, and others. An agency can work with you over the phone if you need. You can also participate in hearings and appeals over the phone.
