A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A DIRECT SUPPORT SPECIALIST (DSP)
As a Direct Support Specialist (DSP), you work directly with our clients to provide training,
mentoring, and day-to-day routine support.

You do so by maintaining a calm, caring, motivating attitude towards clients, and respecting the individual dignity, rights, and privacy of everyone you work with. In addition to direct care, you attend team meetings and complete all required documentation. You get satisfaction from spending time with our clients and helping them thrive!
