Many people ask: What is a DSP?
In short, it is someone who provides supports and services to people with disabilities.
But what does a DSP really do?
A DSP spends their days with extremely talented and amazing people. DSPs might have the opportunity of being invited to Special Olympics, tournaments, sporting events, the movies, dance parties, and out to eat based on the interests of the people you work with. DSPs spend their night’s laughing, having fun, teaching skills and abilities through coaching and role modeling, playing card games, playing music, and trying new adventures. Not only that, but a DSP also has the privilege of being asked to be a voice to advocate for the needs of those who don’t always have the voice or the power to do so.
