A Week to Honor Our DSPs
CBS is excited to celebrate Direct Support Professional Week (DSP) Week from September 11-17. Recognized annually, DSP Week highlights the dedicated and innovative team members who are the backbone of supporting persons with autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities. Often overlooked, the importance of a DSP’s ability to develop a trusting relationship with a person receiving support cannot be overstated. These relationships, forged by the DSP’s genuine care for another person, create the opportunity for persons they support to share and achieve their hopes, dreams, and goals. DSPs work tirelessly, around the clock, with the goal of ensuring that each person receives the highest level of care and is supported in their journey to becoming the best version of himself or herself.
CBS enjoys celebrating direct support professionals during DSP Week. In the past, DSPs have been celebrated with a meal, gift bags containing favorite snacks, and a board with positive messages for each team member. One home typically barbecues on the Wednesday evening of DSP week, allowing for the people who live in the home to celebrate along with the team. Our families have also joined in by donating funds to gift teams with CBS branded gear, like water bottles, vests or coffee mugs.
A highlight of DSP Week is the nomination of Employee of the Year. DSPs from each program will vote, by secret ballot, for the team member they believe best promotes the agency mission. CBS looks forward to announcing the next Employee of the Year and honoring that person’s accomplishments.
CBS thanks all direct support professionals for their compassion, creativity and energetic work ethic!
