International Journal: This Hot Mess Called COVID-19

Apr 1, 2021 | Guides, International Journals

However, we must still keep other public health practices in place to reduce spread. At the same time, it is not too early to start thinking about how things may be different, with the knowledge that hopefully soon things actually will be.

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.
