Message From Relias: 

Relias, in partnership with ANCOR, is excited to share the second edition of our DSP Survey Report with you. The 2021 DSP Survey Report dives deeper into themes uncovered in the 2019 survey, while also taking into consideration the impacts COVID-19 had on DSPs and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) services.

The 2021 DSP Survey Report highlights feedback from 679 direct support professionals (DSPs) across 43 states on job satisfaction, supervision, career advancement opportunities, and appreciation and recognition. Using this data, organizational leaders in IDD services can inform policies for better working conditions that will increase DSP satisfaction and, ultimately, positively affect the individuals whom DSPs serve.

In the report you’ll learn:

  • Overall trends and insights on DSP job satisfaction.
  • The difficulties DSPs faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The impact appreciation and recognition have on overall DSP job satisfaction, in addition to the ways DSPs want to be recognized.
  • The benefits of creating career advancement programs and how they can help retain DSPs.
