Equity Project Dashboard
In 2016, the California state legislature gave additional money to the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) to work on promoting ethnic/race equity in the services that the Regional Centers purchase for clients. Based on the data from DDS, clients of different ethnicity/race receive different levels of service.
Westside Regional Center developed a number of projects to address this important issue using the available funds. We are monitoring those projects and the money spent on services in different ethnic/race groups. You can follow our efforts by clicking on the following dashboards to view:

National Core Indicators (NCI) Data
In 2010, in accordance with Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 4571, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) implemented a nationwide quality assessment survey called the National Core Indicators (NCI) produced by the Human Services Research Institute and the National Association of Directors of Developmental Disabilities.
NCI is one tool that DDS uses to monitor the performance of the developmental disabilities service system as well as the performance of our twenty-one regional centers in providing services and supports for developmentally disabled adults and children.
The NCI surveys are conducted by the State Council on Developmental Disabilities through in-person interviews with adult consumers every three years and consumers who have moved out of a developmental center to the community every year.
Surveys collect data on consumer and family satisfaction, quality of services, and personal results. For information on WRC’s performance, click here: http://www.dds.ca.gov/RCOversight/Overview_WRC.cfm
