Celebrating IAHD Direct Support Professionals – More than One Week! September 16, 2019

Direct Support Professionals at the Armonk Residence

Direct Support Professional Recognition Week took place September 8 through September 14th this year. Direct Support Professionals are the “core” of New York’s system of supports for individuals with developmental disabilities. This job requires technical and values-based skills that make life-changing differences in the lives of the individuals they support.

This year we recognized and celebrated our Direct Support Professionals, at the Day Programs and Residences where they work each and everyday throughout the entire month of September!
