I may not be the first to write about this but I am very thankful for the work the Direct Support Staff provide throughout all of the health services arena. The work is endless, varied, challenging, and is appreciated by all who they touch. Here is a link for the Senate Resolution designating Direct Support Professionals Recognition week September 7th. I hope more people will recognize the work they do daily, year in and year out and this one week is only 1 out of 52 of the year that they need recognition and respect as professionals.
