Resources for School-Age Children with Disabilities
You and your child begin the journey that will give them the skills they need for their lives. This journey will require persistence and team-work with all the people your student will work with.
Where to Begin
If your child is having difficulty in school, and you suspect that he has a disability, you can request to have her tested with the school psychologist.
You can also go to your local Regional Center and request an intake assessment to determine if your child qualifies for services. Check out their website www.farnorthernrc.org. If they are not accepted for services, you can try again if you still feel that your child may have a developmental disability. You may request assistance with your appeal from the State Council on Developmental Disabilities or the Client Rights Advocate. The Northern counties of Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Plumas, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity are served by Far Northern Regional Center.

COVE is a community-based program that provides activities to suit each individual’s interests and abilities.
The purpose of Supported Living Services is to provide social and community integration for clients served in the least restrictive way possible.
California Vocations started its Supported Living Services program in 1996 to accommodate developmentally disabled individuals who benefit from living in their own home as opposed to living in a congregated living environment.
