Community Integration (CI)

Community Integration refers to a California Regional Center program where youth and young adults with developmental or learning disabilities can live, work, and co-exist seamlessly with all community members.

​The main Principle of Community Integration is community inclusion. The inclusion concept refers to teach social and other skills to individuals with disabilities so that they may live, play and function in their community. Our goal is for the individual to have work, socialize and have lasting relationships with others in their community. They can make choices in life in their daily routines, education, employment, leisure, relationship, and personal future.

As a service provider, Positive Behavior Steps Community Integration Program is tailored to the individual needs of our program participants with a goal to improve their quality of life.

Supported Living Services (SLS)

Supporting Living Services (SLS) refers to a California Regional Center Program that provides support to adults with developmental disabilities who want to live independently.

The goal of SLS is based on what the State has established in the Lanterman Act which states:

  • Consumers shall be supported in living arrangements which are typical of those in which persons without disabilities reside.
  • The services an individual receives shall be contingent on changes and new needs without the consumer having to move elsewhere.
  • The consumer's preference shall guide his decisions concerning where and with whom he or she lives
  • Consumers shall have control over the environment within their own home
  • The purpose of furnishing services and supports to a consumer shall be to assist that individual to exercise choice in his or her life while building critical and durable relationships.
  • The services or supports shall be flexible and tailored to a consumer's needs and preferences.
  • Services and supports are most effective when furnished where a person lives and within the context of his or day to day activities.
  • Consumers shall not be excluded from supported living arrangements based solely on the nature and severity of their disabilities.
Positive Behavior Steps works with adults to teach skills so that an individual is prepared to live an independent life by assisting them with resume support, job placement, teaching them daily living skills (i.e., grocery shopping, Bill pay, etc), and other important life and relationship skills so they are active community members.
