Family support services must meet the cultural preferences, values, and lifestyles of families.Sections 4685(b)(4), 4502.1, and 4646.5(a)(1). If you (the parent or guardian) want the regional center to respect your culture, tell them about your cultural values and customs. Be specific, so the regional center can understand the importance to you and your child. Give your child’s service coordinator information that will help them consider your child’s background. Bring this up at your child’s IPP meeting, and ask for specific cultural preferences to be included in your child’s IPP.
