2020 Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is September 13-19
Help recognize the amazing work Direct Support Professionals do!
The week of September 13-19, 2020 is Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week. DSP Week is a great opportunity to highlight the dedicated, innovative direct support workforce that is the heart and soul of supports for people with disabilities.
This is a week to highlight the important work of direct support professionals nationwide, but especially those in your life, whether they work for your agency, support you or a loved one, or simply work to make a difference in the community. This celebration of the DSPs at the heart of our industry is to showcase the amazing and often unsung work they do, and mark just a small fraction of the recognition that they deserve throughout the year.
Accord encourages you to thank the Direct Support Professionals you know this week. Because of them, we are able to offer more programs and services to the people we support in the community. We encourage everyone to learn about the supports provided by DSPs and help us advocate for public policies that will improve the lives of many people. Every citizen should know the vital work performed by DSPs and ensure those services are available when they or someone they know need them.
Thank you for all you do, DSPs!
