Resources

Redwood Coast Regional Center believes that access to information, supports, and learning is necessary for all people to achieve their life goals. In this section, we provide links to other websites that may offer all of the above. We also offer two calendars of training opportunities; those in our communities at large, and those that may be offered by (and/or for) service providers. We encourage you to check the training calendars frequently for new postings, and to explore the online links provided.  In addition, this section provides a Community Resource Handbook (pdf document), Generic Resource & Natural Supports Checklist (pdf document) and a booklet, Making It Happen (pdf document), which is a resource for families for requesting coverage from a health plan for speech, occupational and physical therapy for a child.

We also invite you to contribute to this page by forwarding links we have not yet included, or announcements of local training opportunities. Please forward all such contributions via email to: dlandry@redwoodcoastrc.org. We reserve the right to edit or withhold any contributions.
