What Qualifications Do I Need to Become a Direct Support Professional?

Capital Healthcare Staffing | March 5, 2020

The demand for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) continues to grow. Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities need someone in their lives in order to remain independent and safe at home. DSPs will provide assistance and instruction on completing tasks that most people take for granted. A DSP will help their clients with everyday tasks such as preparing meals, going to appointments and running errands. You may also be responsible for helping your client to take medication and maintain medical records.
