Date: September 2015
National Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is celebrated annually in September to recognize the dedication and accomplishments of direct support professionals who provide a range of daily living supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilties. The Arc of Schuyler participates in this week of recognition in several ways. We publish and distribute an annual newsletter featuring just a few of our outstanding direct support professionals. We also hold a fun event for all staff, which may be a private screening of a documentary/film at the local theater, a guest speaker, or motivational trainer.
