Each year, a week in September is designated as Direct Support Professional(DSP) Recognition Week to honor and thank DSPs everywhere. In honor of DSP Recognition Week 2015, we asked a few people, "What is a Direct Support Professional?"
What is a Direct Support Professional? In the words of a person served, "She is there when I need help." Another person goes on to say, "She pushes me to be the best person I can be."
Direct Support Staff (DSPs) are the true backbone of the organization, showing everyday their willingness to go above and beyond to support the individuals served.
