Governor Tom Wolf joins us in promoting Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week September 8–14, 2019 in his Proclamation. This week is a great opportunity to highlight the important work of Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) and the difference they make in the lives of people with disabilities and their families. The often unsung work of DSPs is critical to the quality of care provided to individuals who are counting on them for assistance in living an “Everyday Life” in the community. Please visit ANCOR’s online toolkit.
To support your efforts to acknowledge DSPs, this toolkit offers ideas and resources you can use to say “thanks” and raise awareness about the role DSPs play in helping people with disabilities be part of the community. The toolkit includes a high-resolution version of the DSP Recognition Week 2019 logo (for use in or on any materials you see fit), customizable social media posts (for use in spreading the word), and links to ANCOR’s DSP Recognition Week Store.
Please share stories of your celebration with Carol Ferenz so we can include them on our social media pages and support your efforts, and tag us with your Twitter posts — @paproviders.
