Ensure DSPs Are Recognized as an Occupation!

Blog, In the News, Legislative Issues

As we celebrate Direct Support Professional (DSP) Recognition Week and honor the incredible work that DSPs do every day across the country to support individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), it’s important to note that the federal government still doesn’t recognize DSPs as a distinct profession for gathering employment data. However, there’s hope on the horizon with the “Recognizing the Role of Direct Support Professionals Act.”

By supporting this act, we take a significant step toward improving access to high-quality care and fostering independence and inclusion for individuals with I/DD through more accurate data on the direct support workforce.
