A Day in the Life of a Direct Support Professional

Providing Direct Support

When you become a DSP at RISE Services, Inc. Utah, you are providing simple, yet meaningful support to individuals who live with developmental disabilities. Whether it’s working in our educational programs, providing support for professional parents, or engaging with clients at our Opportunity Centers, you are the strong backbone that allows us to serve individuals in a caring and compassionate way. 

Working In A Variety of Areas

The tasks of a DSP are many and also vary widely. If you are working in our after-school or summer programs, you will be giving children the opportunity to enjoy fun activities that support skill development and behavior assistance in a safe environment. Within our residential or group homes, you may be assisting individuals with tasks such as daily hygiene, meal prep, grocery shopping, or transportation to work and social activities. We also offer support to the families of those individuals living with a disability through our supported living design. If there’s a specific area that you are interested in, we are happy to talk about it more.
