Once you are qualified, for most families, the regional center is only as good as the service coordinator you are working with. Some are helpful and knowledgeable, some are not. Did you know you can request to have a different service coordinator?

I wanted to find out if I could request another coordinator from Regional Center. I am not very happy with this coordinator, and unfortunately, the one I started with have retired now.

yes, you can. you have to have a good reason, so you need to write down what they are not doing, or what they are doing poorly, etc.
