The regional center assists individuals and/ or families in obtaining services that are identified in the individual plan. When there is no alternate source of funding the regional center may pay the cost of purchasing services from other agencies or professionals.  ELARC applies guidelines to that decision making process, although each request is considered on an individual basis.

  3. Enable the individual to approximate the pattern of everyday living of a non-disabled person of the same age leading to a more independent, productive and normal life in the community and promote integration into mainstream community life [WIC Sec. 4648]. 
  4. Assist individuals with developmental disabilities, in achieving the greatest self–sufficiency possible and exercising personal choice.
