Other pertinent data would be pertinent data. Do some regional centers provide more information on options and alternatives without being asked? Do some regional centers see their clients live more fully or require less support over time? Are there regional center policies that might correlate with outcomes? Which regional center will be the first to notify a client of their appeal rights as required?
This would all be pertinent data. This information would help our system learn, evolve and do better work with less waste. We would be better off if we had no idea how many Californian 15-year-olds have diagnoses of autism and some notion of what works for those that do.
