Nominate a Direct Support Professional
Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) are vital to the life experiences of many people with disabilities in Maryland. From employment support to community living assistance, DSPs are many times the key difference between community participation and isolation for those with disabilities.
The Maryland Department of Disabilities (MDOD) and the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) join others throughout the United States in marking September 10th through September 16th, 2017 as DSP Recognition Week.
MDOD and DDA plan to travel the state thanking Direct Support Professionals for their dedication and expertise.
Join us in our celebration by nominating an outstanding DSP or employer for recognition
. If chosen, your nominee could receive a visit from department staff and a Governor's Citation as we travel throughout Maryland. One nominee in each category will be selected for a photo opportunity in Annapolis! THE NOMINATION DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO SEPTEMBER 1ST! Nominate your favorite DSP today!
