The National Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week, as approved by Senate Resolution 228, provides a unique opportunity to organize events, rally people together and celebrate the noble work of more than 3.2 million Direct Support Professionals in the United States.
ISA celebrates the work of Direct Support Professionals (DSP’s) through their annual Recognition Award presented to DSP’s who demonstrate excellence, creativity and commitment to enhancing the lives of individuals with disabilities. Without competent and caring direct support staff, quality outcomes for people with disabilities would be limited, and achieving interdependence would be increasingly difficult.
This year, ISA received an overwhelming response to the award announcement. Please visit our website during September 1st through the 15th to participate in our first ever online vote! Winners and runners-up will be announced on September 18th.
Good luck to all who entered!
