DDS, state legislators, regional offices of the SCDD, and regional centers use task forces or advisory groups to study issues, recommend policies, evaluate new services, and investigate system problems. These agencies must make their best efforts to include consumers and family members. Task forces or advisory groups must also reflect their community’s diverse cultures.Section 4640.8.
If you learn about one of these groups and you want to participate, let them know. These groups are formed when an issue or question comes up and a regional center needs community input and advice. If you contact your regional center ahead of time, you have a better chance of participating.
