Your regional center may suggest changing your day program or activities. However, once you have programs or activities written in your IPP, the regional center can only ask to change your program in an IPP meeting. If you do not agree with the regional center after the meeting, the regional center must send you a written notice about the change, called a Notice of Action (NOA). The notice must tell you about your right to appeal.
You have the right to file for a hearing. If you file 30 days or less after you get the regional center’s notice, you can stay in the program while you appeal.Section 4701(n). If you do not file your appeal within 30 days, you can still challenge the regional center’s decision, as long as you file within 60 days. You cannot stay in the program during the appeal process.
