Beacons, Inc. is listed on the San Diego Regional Center's list to offer Self-Determination Planning. The Beacons planning service uses a wide array of planning tools based upon the individual's needs to help devise a detailed plan and service cost breakdown to make sure families and individuals have a meaningful, easily understood plan to support the client's dreams and goals relating to employment, post-secondary education, advocacy, person-driven planning and general community integration. We can help a little or a lot - it's up to the client!
SDRC Clients: No vendor number is needed to access this service. Beacons, Inc. will meet with you, create a planning outline and cost-breakdown to make sure our process meets your planning needs. If the client agrees to proceed, invoices are submitted to the SDRC to obtain payment for services rendered by Beacons, Inc.
Beacons, Inc. created a detailed person-driven (aka person-centered) planning program called "Lighthouse" that explores the client's interests and needs, identifies local community resources based upon the client's interests and needs, and creates a "portable" plan that clients can take and update over the years. Beacons was founded and is primarily fun by families who understand the need for precise and individualized planning so that the future no longer feels overwhelming. Contact us today to learn more!

Tailored Day Services
Our Tailored Day service is a specialized support option where a staff member (a tailored day specialist) works 1:1 with a client to support their needs in the workplace, post-secondary educational pursuits, advocacy, person-driven planning and general community integration. Our specialist is pre-trained before working with the client to make sure he/she/they is aware of any safety, behavior or health issues that may impact the provision of services and to make sure the specialist know how to support the trainee. All Tailored Day staff will begin the service with individualized curriculum in place that contains specific goals and measures progress to make sure progress is being made and goals addressed.
SDRC Clients: Under the Lanterman Act (§ 4688.21), if a client is a San Diego Regional Center consumer, the client may have up to 8 hours a week of 1:1 support funded by the SDRC to help the client learn skills to improve the client's independence and work towards the client's life goals. The possibilities are endless, but common uses of TDSO are support and tutoring for educational pursuits, job coaching, development of community routines, transportation support, creation and implementation of a community-based fitness routine, and more! Give us your goals and we'll give you 8 hours of highly individualized support.
