The ability of direct support professionals to come to work and establish relationships with people with disabilities, to truly see the people they serve as – well – people is vital in order to be able to do the work they do every day.

The International Journal for Direct Support Professionals contains easy to-read, practical articles for Direct Support Professionals on a variety of topics that are pertinent to their role in supporting people with intellectual disabilities.
