An individual is considered an official adult to the regional centers at age 18, or at age 22 if they have not graduated high school. Starting at these ages, individuals may sign their IPP (Individualized Program Plan) along with any other legal documents. An IPP is an agreement signed between the individual and a regional center that specifies the services the regional center will provide for the individual. Service coordinators at regional centers help individuals from the time they are 20 through their lifespan. If the individual has been assigned a coordinator when they are school age, the coordinator will likely transfer over through their adult life. Services offered to adults mainly revolve around community inclusion, self determination, and independence, as such the services include housing and employment assistance, day programs, and access to other community resources such as their Supplemental Security Income.
