Direct Support Professionals Recognition Week 2019: Dwayne’s Story

Please join The Arc of Massachusetts in recognizing the dedication and accomplishments of our terrific Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) this week (September 8 – 14). We’ll be sharing stories this week that highlight the important contributions DSPs make every day to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.

Direct Support Professionals sometimes get hooked on helping people after working with individuals with disabilities.

Dwayne developed a wonderful bond with Tyler during a challenging time in his life.  His help made a huge difference.

After working as Tyler’s DSP, Dwayne has since moved on to receive his Masters in Social Work and continues use his talents to help those in need.

Let’s pay DSPs fairly so they can continue on in the field and grow in their important roles.
