As we announced on Friday, September 28, RCPA has joined with six other Pennsylvania Associations that provide Intellectual Disability and Autism (ID/A) services to develop The 2018 Pennsylvania ID/A Services DSP & Frontline Supervisor Compensation Survey. Those associations include: MAX, PAR, RCPA, The Alliance CSP, The Arc of PA, TPA, and UCP of PA. The purpose of this study is to collect reliable and current information regarding compensation practices for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) and Frontline Supervisors.
You can access the survey online here and a printable pdf copy here. Help strengthen our collective voice by filling out the survey. Although the requested deadline was October 31, 2018, we are extending the deadline for another week in order to obtain the greatest amount of participation. If your organization has not yet completed the survey, please take the time to do so.
The principal investigator, Dr. Scott Spreat, will collect responses on the online survey platform SurveyMonkey®. There should be only ONE response per provider, even if you belong to more than one association. The survey should be completed by someone in the Human Resources area of your organization, getting assistance as needed from staff members.
If you have any survey-related questions, Dr. Spreat can be reached via email or 215-750-4015. For any other questions, please contact Carol Ferenz, RCPA IDD Division Director.
