No. IPP requirements are the same no matter where you live. But, if you live in a Developmental Center (DC), it is the DC staff, rather than regional center staff, who will coordinate the planning team process.
Even if you live in a DC, the regional center must continue to participate in the IPP process. Planning teams must include one or more regional center representatives.Section 4512(j). Regional center staff are important because they know the services and supports for you to move back to the community. The Lanterman Act notes the importance of coordinating with regional centers, and regional resource development projects, to transition people to the community.Section 4418.3. If a regional center person is not at your meeting, ask that they participate, preferably in person, at all of your planning team meetings.
