You don’t need to be at a Therap Conference to talk about Therap. Last Wednesday, Kevin Lightle (New York Regional Director) and I gave a presentation at the annual New York State Association of Community & Residential Agencies (NYSACRA) Conference in Bolton Landing, NY. Our presentation was entitled “Using Therap to Empower Direct Support Professionals”. The presentation was well received and I heard positive feedback from the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP) Executive Director.

This was a wonderful opportunity to not only talk about the positive impact on an agency that Therap can have; but also how it can further professionalize the Direct Support Professional.
