What is a DSP? See what it's about
This two minute video explains how Direct Support Professionals assist people with developmental disabilities in their day-to-day activities: "What is a DSP?" video.
Here's what a DSP says about her work:
Aundrea Gullette, a Direct Support Professional with Graceworks, has been a DSP for four years, and says she likes helping people with disabilities with their everyday needs, whether it be personal care or taking them out in the community for an event or activity. "I like to put a smile on their face, and help them do things they can't do without support."
She finds special joy in helping them reach their goals. "Whether it be taking someone to get an application for a job or helping them learn something new, I try to encourage them to do for themselves, because it that feeling of accomplishment makes them happy. And that's what I want for them."
