One On One Program

What is a DSP?

A Direct Support Professional (DSP) is a person who assists an individual with special needs to lead a self-directed life and contribute to the community. The DSP can also assist with activities of daily living if needed and encourage attitudes and behaviors that enhance community inclusion.

Our Direct Support Professionals serve as the link to the community for those they serve. For some, they may be the eyes of those unable to see, or the voice for those who can’t speak. For others, they are a friend, cheerleader and subtle support on the path to one’s true potential.
