State of Emergency: DDS Directives Issued
The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) issued three department directives specific to Regional Center services in response to the growing crisis caused by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The authority to issue the directives that in some cases temporarily override existing state law (the Lanterman Act and the Early Start Intervention Act,) was granted by a new executive order issued by Governor Newsom that enhanced authority of the State and local governments to respond to the crisis.
