The North Carolina Council on Developmental Disabilities (NCCDD) will host a listening session of personal stories from Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), families and advocates on September 22, 2021 at 3 PM via Zoom.
The session will aim to understand direct support professionals (DSP) on the front lines of whole person-centered care. The event will include personal stories from DSP professionals, families and advocates as well as clips from the film "Invaluable", a life affirming look into the world of whole person care.
It will also include an update on the status of policy work to increase the pay and training for DSPs. It will be an afternoon of collaboration, entertainment, and conversation about how North Carolina can better support DSPs and increase our collective understanding of the value DSPs provide.
Interested individuals are requested to register for the listening session via Zoom. The event is free, but registration is required.
