Direct Support Workforce and COVID-19 National Report: Initial Report

Jul 1, 2020 | Reports

As we learned from friends and colleagues across the country of the mounting challenges in providing supports safely to individuals with disabilities during the early weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic, we knew it was important to hear directly from DSPs about their experiences. In response to this need, the University of Minnesota’s Institute on Community Integration quickly developed a 27-question survey and collaborated with the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals to reach a large sample of DSPs from across the country.
