Orientation is the first step to receiving services under the Self-Determination Program; it is different and much more detailed than the informational session you may have attended in the past. Attending orientation is mandatory, and SCLARC does not accept orientations from other Regional Centers or outside providers. Each Regional Center has slightly different policies and procedures, and SCLARC is committed to ensuring that information provided to our community is specific to the process you will be asked to follow. Please plan to attend the entirety of an orientation via SCLARC.

Please click here for a list of upcoming orientations and information on how to register. If you have questions or concerns regarding orientation or other aspects of Self-Determination, please send an email to SelfDetermination@sclarc.org.

If you are attending the orientation and would like to reference the documents being discussed, please see the list below:
