Direct support professionals (DSPs) play a vital role in supporting and sustaining the life qualities of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DDs). This study examines self-efficacy as a psychosocial correlate for job satisfaction in DSPs and how perspective-taking functions as a moderator for the relationship between self-efficacy and job satisfaction. A sample of 133 DSPs responded to self-report measures for self-efficacy, job satisfaction, and perspective-taking.
