Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are vital to the life experiences of many people with disabilities in Maryland. From employment support to community living assistance, DSPs are many times the key difference between community participation and isolation for those with disabilities.
The Maryland Department of Disabilities (MDOD) and the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) join others throughout the United States in marking September 10th through September 16th, 2017 as DSP Recognition Week. MDOD and DDA plan to travel the state thanking Direct Support Professionals for their dedication and expertise. They will also highlight local employers who have gone above and beyond to successfully utilize the talents of those with disabilities in the workforce.
Join us in the celebration by nominating an outstanding DSP or employer for recognition. Click this link for details. Nominations are due by August 19th.
