Celebrate National Direct Support Professionals Week

Direct support professionals (DSP) are on the front lines, and work with individuals every day to help them meet their goals. National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is a good reminder to pause and thank direct support staff for all they do. This year, National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is September 13-19.

The Ohio Alliance of Direct Support Professionals (OADSP) is marking the week with the 6th Annual Ohio Direct Support Professional Recognition Event on September 16. More than 400 DSPs from around Ohio enjoy a day that includes lots of fun, lots of spirit, and a stimulating and creative program. The event offers a chance for DSPs to get the acknowledgement and appreciation they deserve. DSPs leave this event with a renewed sense of purpose, motivation, inspiration, and a greater sense of belonging to an important and worthy field. More information about the event is available online. If you have questions, contact Katrina Sacay at 866-862-2322, extension 5, or ksacay@oadsp.org.
