If your regional center does not document your native language or does not do an intake, assessment, evaluation, or IPP planning process in your native language, you can file a complaint. Under section 4731 of the Lanterman Act, you can file an administrative complaint against the regional center if you believe that your rights have been violated or denied. [Section 4731.]] To file the complaint, write a brief letter to the director of your regional center. For a list of regional center directors and contact information, see https://www.dds.ca.gov/rc/listings/.
See Chapter 10 for more information on your right to file a complaint.
