During the week of September 9-15, Florida ARF & the Florida Alliance for Direct Support Professional (FADSP) will proudly celebrate DSP Recognition Week. In recognition of this special week, DSPs across the state who represent the backbone of our direct care service system will be featured. Their stories will demonstrate the loving attitude and dedication of so many DSPs who give so freely of themselves to serve others.
We are pleased to announce Governor Rick Scott has signed a letter recognizing DSPs and raising awareness for the Direct Support Professional Recognition Week. Scott stated “Direct support professionals provide a broad range of support for many Floridians with disabilities. These dedicated professionals help disabled citizens by increasing their independence, keeping them connected with their family and community, and offering support and encouragement on a daily basis.” We totally agree with Governor Scott.
To all the DSPs across Florida, we offer a hearty “Thank you for all that you do!”
