This webinar is part of the 2022 The Arc-Relias Webinar Series

Hiring DSPs and other IDD staff remains a top-of-mind concern for IDD organizations. Many DSPs leave after one year at an organization which makes it difficult to build connections and trust with persons served.

Join Relias to hear Dr. Hassan discuss strategies to boost DSP retention and decrease turnover.

In this webinar, you’ll also learn: 

  • Current issues affecting DSP engagement and retention
  • Strategies to improve retention among DSP and IDD staff
  • Examples of how providers have successfully retained long-term staff
