Are you a credentialed DSP?

We want to hear from you! In each issue of Frontline Initiative, we ask credentialed DSPs to talk about how credentialing has impacted their work, the lives of the people they support, ways that they are now supporting other DSPs to pursue credentialing, and more.  If you are a credentialed DSP, we would love to hear your story.  Please email Julie Kramme at dahl0488@umn.edu .
