Individuals with developmental disabilities often need support to lead self-directed lives and participate fully in our community. Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) work with these people to provide assistance with everyday living, and help them with their needs. DSPs may also teach new skills to help individuals become more self-sufficient and reach their goals.
In an effort to assist private providers of day services, employment services and residential services with recruitment of staff, the Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services is sharing http://www.dspohio.org, a resource that helps job seekers connect with information about careers and employment opportunities for DSPs statewide in a single location. Here, people can learn more about the work of DSPs, gather information about DSP careers, and find job openings by county,
