What is SDP? It’s the California Self-Determination Program (SDP), which provides individuals with developmental disabilities who receive regional center services with more freedom, control, and responsibility in choosing services and supports to help them meet objectives in their Individual Program Plan.

We’re here to help you get started in the program. Just give us a call so we can guide you. Or we support you if you’re already in the program!

Contact us to Get Started

Participants in the self-determination program are required to use a financial management services (FMS) company such as ours. We assist with many aspects of your self-determination journey. The program includes FMS expenses, so we are here to support you.

We know this process can be complicated, but we will answer your questions every step of the way. Our team will help you get enrolled and set up with all your employees as quickly as possible, and as hassle-free as possible. If we don’t know an answer, we’ll find it and get back to you, quickly.
