Description

In the run-up to National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week (September 7 – 13), this webinar offers a chance to reflect on the evolving role of Direct Support Professionals and its increasing complexity. Many service providers realize that quality is defined at the point of interaction between the Direct Support Professional and the person with a disability. Direct Support Professionals are often the difference between someone with a disability having a good afternoon, or a great life.

This workshop will provide context on the five characteristics of every profession:

  • a body of knowledge;

  • universally accepted skill areas;

  • a credential, certificate or license to practice;

  • affiliation of a professional membership organization; and a

  • code of professional ethics.

Join us for this discussion about what makes a professional a professional, how to work with intention, and how to help the people you serve enjoy a good afternoon and a great life.

Direct support professionals, frontline managers and others are encouraged to participate.

There is no cost for this webinar, but you must register. Registration for this webinar is limited! A recording will be available and registration for that recording will open on Friday, August 29, 2014.
