Congratulations to Abby Getz, Ciara Oder, and Gwen Lewis, they have been nominated for the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) Direct Support Professional (DSP) of the year - a national recognition.
Nicole Ericson, Associate Program Director with EPI, was recognized earlier this week for her efforts to support Iowans with disabilities to exercise their responsibility to contribute toward self-sufficiency through work.
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.
On May 6, the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR) recognized Mitch Tyler of Exceptional Persons, Inc. in Waterloo as the 2014 Direct Support Professional of the Year for Iowa.
Exceptional Persons, Inc.'s (EPI's) employee Brian Brandau has joined EPI's 5 Star Club as he was awarded March Direct Support Professional (DSP) of the month.
Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) at EPI are of the highest quality. They work hard, have passion for their work and are strong advocates for the individuals we serve.
In just under five years with EPI, Leanna Haahr has accomplished quite a bit. If you asked her what stands out the most in her growing list of accomplishments she'd most likely tell you “the job I do every day as a Direct Support Professional (DSP) - helping the persons I serve be as independent as possible.”
