Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are the backbone of the developmental disability service system and a key to quality supports and services. Equipping them with knowledge, skills, and an ethical foundation is essential. Providing supportive supervision is critical to the stability of the direct support workforce. This presentation will address evidence-based practices in DSP professional development and the impact these practices have on outcomes for people with disabilities. Best practices in supporting and training frontline supervisors to most effectively coach, mentor, and supervise DSPs will be discussed in this session.
