5 Reasons To Be A Direct Support Professional

#1. 
Go to work where individuals are excited to see you & are glad you’re there - - because you make a REAL difference in their lives.

Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities like having fun, doing things, going places and they like their staff for helping them live life!  Everyone enjoys getting out and about in the community attending Reds/Dragons games, going to the Zoo and Kings Island.  Sound like a good job to you?

#2.
Develop your own skills directing behaviors and situations in a professional way, while teaching others ways to handle them, too!

In your own life, you probably deal with stubborn relatives or friends. Our professionals train DSP staff in behavior support methods - a skill that works on the job. It’s a skill that will serve you well through life.

Make a difference in the lives of others and get paid for it at the same time - - sound good to you? Whether it’s grocery shopping, doing laundry, or working on a puzzle, DSPs support lives and develop abilities. For example, imagine the joy when an individual masters the ability to manage their own money! The experience is priceless for the DSP and the individual, too. A DSPs job is to develop the abilities of the individuals they support.

"We're all DSPs"
