The CA Self Determination Network

The SDP Network is a tool that connects self-determining individuals and families with Independent Facilitators and other service providers. Participants and families can search for traditional and non-traditional services in their area on this new platform that is universally designed and speaks more than 200 languages. Thanks to Public Partnerships (PPL), the largest Financial Management Service (FMS) in the United States, and the Local Volunteer Advisory Committee at the San Gabriel/Pomona Regional Center, Education Spectrum was able to launch this website for Californian's.
