San Diego Regional Center:

When you first contact San Diego Regional Center, you say you would like to refer your child for services. The Support Staff will take your name and the Regional Center staff who is “On Call” will call you back to gather more information to determine if they will open a case. They will always need the IEP and Psychological Evaluations. Make sure when you attend your IEP meetings you request copies of your child’s Psychological Evaluation. The more medical and psychological information you have, will help speed this process along.

The Regional Center has 120 days from the day they receive the intake packet from the parents. So if you provide this information right away, the eligibility process will move along much faster. 

You should contact  the San Diego Regional Center when your child is 1 year of age, to start the intake process (possibly for the Early Start Program). Then once again when your teenager is in grade 9 you should restart the intake process with Regional Center. They will want to see the latest reports you have for your child. 

If there is a question of Autism or an intellectual disabilitiy (MR), then the Regional Center would need the IEP Plus the Psychological Evaluation.  A medical evaluation is extremely important when a family is applying for services if the disability is Epilepsy, or Cerebral Palsy.
