About This Webinar
When we talk to Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) at IDD organizations around the nation, we hear the same frustrations and challenges over and over. Two of the big ones – unrealistic previews of the job that leave them unprepared for the hard work involved in providing daily support, and inadequate guidance and support from often-overworked supervisors.
Peer mentorship can bridge that gap for DSPs. Getting advice from someone who has had similar experiences and understands the real-world challenges of the job can help a DSP improve their skills and increase the likelihood of retention.
IDD organizations can actively promote and support peer mentorship. In this on-demand webinar, Arlene Bridges, an IDD business expert, gives you concrete steps that will help you develop better, more committed DSPs.
