Services for School-Aged Children

Available Services for School-Aged Children

Overview

Many times our clients or parents/family members ask us for information on the services that are available. We have developed this list to provide you with an overview of these services. Please keep in mind that services are determined on an individualized basis. Services must be identified as needed on the Individual Person-Centered Plan (IPP), and provided in accordance with Harbor Regional Center service policies, which are posted on our website.

Some services are provided by publicly-funded community agencies, such as school districts, Medi-Cal, etc., and some are funded by HRC, after we have met the requirement of exploring all other possible funding sources.

We know that you want to understand the variety of services available, so that you can be a well-informed participant in the service planning process. Here is a list of some of the services and supports that are commonly recommended for school-age children (3-22) and their families.

Assessment and Consultation

Your Service Coordinator may arrange for a meeting with one of HRC’s specialists, or an multi-disciplinary team, to evaluate your child’s needs and provide you with consultation. Assessment and consultation may assist in providing or clarifying a diagnosis, determining what type of services and supports are needed, identifying family health and mental health needs, supporting eligibility for a publicly funded benefit, etc.

What Are Alternative & Participant Directed Services?

On August 31, 2020, as a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) issued a state directive allowing regional center-funded services to be provided in alternative ways. Alternative services may be an option for our clients, to make sure that your individual needs continue to be met.

Alternative services are a way to continue to fund service provider resources, so that they and their direct staff workforce remain available to serve you. The Department of Developmental Services also wants to make sure that California can continue to receive federal funding to support regional center services.

Aaron’s mother had an unfortunate surprise recently, when the Social Security Administration suspended Aaron’s benefits.
