What are Employment Consultant/ Direct Support Professionals Responsible For?We are all human, and finding meaningful connections outside our homes is foundational to living a full and rich life. Having a paying job and active life is something many of us take for granted. Imagine having the desire to score your first real job, the satisfaction of your own responsibilities, the bonding and growth from being part of a team, and the reward from someone telling you, "Good job!" Or maybe want to join the local book club but not have the ability to get there each week. Here is where our Employment Consultant/ DSPs come in!
