4731 / Consumer Rights Complaint
The Lanterman Developmental Disabilities Services Act provides consumers and others with a process by which a complaint can be filed against a regional center, developmental center, or regional center service provider, when there is a belief that a consumer’s rights have been abused, punitively withheld or improperly or unreasonably denied.
The intent of the 4731 Complaint Process is to provide a meaningful resolution when a rights violation has been substantiated, and attempt to prevent similar violations from occurring again.
