Sparking Conversation: The California Self-Determination Program Facebook Forum

May 3, 2021

The California Self-Determination Program Forum is a Facebook page from the State Council on Developmental Disabilities. The site is a great place for people to provide ideas, ask questions, and get answers about all things related to self-determination. It can be found at

The forum has almost 1,300 active followers who post to the site frequently. Recent topics include preferred financial management service providers (FMS), self-determination, and where to get COVID-19 vaccines.  It also has links where you can register for upcoming conferences and workshops in both English and Spanish.

Self-determination has many names and can be different from state to state. There is some misunderstanding out there about what self-determination is and isn’t. This forum works to address those issues. It also helps to make sure people have the information they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their loved ones.

One thing that is important to know about this forum is that everyone can view it. Anyone can look at the forum’s page and its information. But, only people with a Facebook account may join the group, post a comment, or respond to a question within the group. The forum is monitored to make sure that discussions are about self-determination. Monitoring also helps protect the rights and opinions of all members.
