About this report

Relias, in partnership with the American Network of Community Options and Resources (ANCOR), is excited to share the second edition of the DSP Survey Report. The 2023 DSP Survey Report dives deeper into themes uncovered in the 2021 survey, while also taking into consideration the impacts COVID-19 is having on DSPs and IDD services.

The 2023 DSP Survey Report highlights feedback from 763 direct support professionals (DSPs) across the country on job satisfaction, supervision, career advancement opportunities, and appreciation and recognition.

Using this data, organizational leaders in IDD services can inform policies for better working conditions that will increase DSP satisfaction, and ultimately, positively affect the individuals whom DSPs serve.
