Direct Support Professionals
Over the past four decades, the ways in which Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) help and support people with development disabilities have changed and improved through the hard work and dedication of everyone involved – including parents, advocates, policy makers, and people receiving services.
Besides becoming more person-centered, a greater emphasis is being placed on the ethical practices of DSPs and higher levels of competence when providing services and support.
The Regional Centers for Workforce Transformation provide a substantial resource library to assist DSPs with developing the professional skills, ethics, and competencies needed to move forward in their chosen career and best serve people with developmental disabilities.
We have provided a list of current resources below. Simply click on the links provided to watch a video, webinar, or download a document.
