If you believe your day program is not meeting your needs, request an IPP meeting to talk about changing your program or services. Your IPP process determines what is the best work or day program for you. You have the right to consider day programs that help you reach your IPP goals. No one can force you to go to a day program if you do not want to.
All day programs must have a grievance procedure.Section 4705(a)(2) and Title 17, Cal. Code Regs. section 56710(a). If you disagree with the program’s decision, you can ask to use the grievance procedure. If the day program violated your rights, you can file a “Section 4731 complaint.” (See Chapter 10).
If the program thinks you are a threat to the health and safety of others in the program, it can ask you to stay away from the program immediately. But, unless there is a prior written agreement, it must meet within three days with you and your service coordinator to discuss the problem and any program changes that may help solve the problem.Title 17, Cal. Code Regs. section 56718(g).
