Welcome to our Fall Issue where we consider the role of direct support professionals in the lives of people with disabilities. Quality services are not possible without a competent and committed direct care workforce. DSPs are the backbone of the service system, yet they are the least trained and lowest paid. They know the person they support better than any staff member, yet DSP's are not included on the individual's planning team or consulted about critical decisions. It's time for this to change.
