The IPP should state the information from assessments and from you, your family, and friends about how your disability affects you. This means talking about how well you do independently, productively, and living like people your age who do not have disabilities.Section 4501, paragraph four. A good description and a list of clear and measurable objectives and goals will decide the kinds and amounts of services and supports you need. It also helps if the regional center wants to reduce or terminate your services. If you continue to have the same problems functioning in the areas covered by your IPP goals, it will be harder to say the services must end. But, it may be good to discuss changing services. The law requires your IPP to say how often your team will review the IPP. This is to see if you can reach your objectives and goals, so you can change or increase services if needed.
A complete and detailed IPP makes sure everyone understands what services and supports you are entitled to get and should be getting.
