SDP Connect

SDP Connect is a weekly information-sharing Zoom meeting for Self-Determination Program (SDP) participants from everywhere in California, family members, independent facilitators, FMSs, regional center staff, service providers, and anyone else who is interested in moving the SDP forward! Each meeting will last only one hour. The first 15-20 minutes will be a presentation on a different topic followed by questions and answers from attendees at the meeting. We will stop each meeting after one hour but we will be back the following week to provide more assistance.

These are recordings of our past SDP Connect calls.
