Direct Support Professional Recognition Week is an annual week of nationwide celebrations in which we all honor the professionals who make up the foundation of supports for people with disabilities. DSP Recognition Week 2023 is taking place September 10-16.

We’ve asked organizations and individuals to use the hashtag #DSPRW2023 and tell us about their events honoring DSPs. Below is just a sample of these amazing celebrations. Search the hashtag on Twitter and Facebook to view them all!
