If you believe that the regional center has wrongly or unfairly denied your rights, you may file a complaint with the Clients’ Rights Advocate. This process resolves complaints other than disputes about eligibility or the nature, scope, or amount of services—which are resolved by filing for a fair hearing.
Find detailed information about complaints and fair hearings, including forms, at the Department of Developmental Services web site: www.dds.ca.gov/Complaints/Home.cfm
This web site includes a phone number for answering applicant questions as required by Assembly Bill 1402.
