From Praise to Promise
Registration Now Open
During 2020 National Direct Support Professional (DSP) Recognition Week, which takes place from September 13 – 19, NADSP and the Research and Training Center on Community Living from the Institute on Community Integration at the University of Minnesota, will be holding its first ever virtual event ‘From Praise to Promise.‘ While the in-person connections created each year at our conferences feel irreplaceable, this week-long occasion provides an unprecedented opportunity.
This virtual event is completely free and we want everyone to participate.
The theme ‘From Praise to Promise’ offers a mix of recognition and gratitude for DSPs, along with concrete steps and proven best practices that can be implemented across the human services field. This has the potential to elevate the status of DSPs, involving how they’re acknowledged, empowered, and supported.
Throughout the week we’ll be hosting keynotes, breakouts, panel presentations, and of course the John F. Kennedy Jr. Award. Registration for each of the sessions are now open. To register for the events, use this link.
