Direct Support Professional Recognition Week Is Underway

September 16, 2015

Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is currently in full swing in 40 states and Washington, D.C.

Sponsored annually by the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR), Direct Support Professional Recognition Week honors the “dedication and accomplishments” of the DSP workforce, the ANCOR website says.

Governors in 40 states have officially recognized the week of September 13-19 as Direct Support Professional Recognition Week.

For ideas about ways to honor direct support professionals this week, visit the ANCOR website.
