AIM Thanks Essential DSPs During National Week of Recognition

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Sept. 13-19, 2020 is National Direct Support Professional (DSP) Recognition Week when the contributions of more than 4.5 million direct support professionals, direct care workers, personal care assistants, personal attendants, in-home support workers and paraprofessionals throughout the country who provide quality support to individuals with disabilities are celebrated. 

However, due to the on-going pandemic, most organized efforts are being conducted virtually or through individual acts of appreciation.

AIM Services, Inc., the area’s largest provider of services to individuals with physical and intellectual disabilities will be recognizing the more than 400 DSPs it employs through employee-gifts and incentive plans in addition to partnerships with local businesses to provide merchandise and services to DSPs at a discount. 

“This year’s DSP Week carries enormous importance.” said Christopher R. Lyons, Executive Director AIM Services, Inc. “During the COVID19 pandemic, Direct Support Professionals have served as a critical line of defense keeping the people we serve safe from the Corona virus.”
