Regional Center Rates are based on Staffing Levels
California Regional Center Facility Levels
The Regional Center contracts with you to provide a specific level of residential care (levels refer to facilities, not residents). The higher the level the more care and supervision that is required. More staff are required to be employed in a level 4I facility than a level 2 facility. Facilities levels 4A and above will require you to hire the services of a behavior management specialist who creates a behavior plan for each client. The levels of care are as follows:
Limited care and supervision for persons with self-care skills and no behavior problems.
Care, supervision and incidental training for persons with some self-care skills and no major behavior problems.
Care, supervision and ongoing training for persons with significant deficits in self-help skills, and/or some limitations in physical coordination and mobility, and/or disruptive or self-injurious behavior.
Care, supervision and professionally supervised training for persons with deficits in self-help skills, and/or severe impairment in physical coordination and mobility, and/or severely disruptive or self-injurious behavior.
Level 4 is subdivided into Levels 4A through 4I in which staffing levels are increased to correspond to the escalating severity of disability level.
