Services and Programs
The various services and programs offered by The National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP) provide professional development opportunities along with the resulting recognition and acknowledgement that employees deserve. Whether a DSP pursues a rigorous certification, or a Frontline Supervisor benefits from an in-depth curriculum, NADSP equips organizations with tools to help their employees succeed.
Certification provides national recognition for the contributions and competence staff who apply for and meet the NADSP certification standards.
Training & Technical Assistance
These professional development opportunities will improve the knowledge and skill sets of DSPs, Frontline Supervisors, along with leadership and employees.
NADSP conducts keynote presentations for conferences and meetings to inform attendees about pressing issues affecting human services. Customized keynote presentations can also be developed based on the unique interests of organizers and attendees.
The National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP) has launched The NADSP E-Badge Academy, which offers Direct Support Professionals the ability to earn electronic badges as a way to demonstrate the acquisition and development of knowledge, skills, and values. The use of electronic badges recognizes and celebrates this progress that would otherwise go unacknowledged.
