Sign the Petition: Fix the DSP Crisis!
Pennsylvania's intellectual disability/autism (ID/A) workforce is in crisis. Pennsylvania’s government hasn’t increased rates for ID/A services in ten years, which has caused wages for Direct Support Professionals (DSP) to flat line. PAR has launched the #FixTheDSPCrisis campaign to tell Pennsylvania’s policymakers to address this crisis now. After watching the Fix The DSP Crisis Video, sign the petition asking Pennsylvania’s policymakers to #FixTheDSPCrisis!
Petition Text
Pennsylvania has not increased rates for intellectual disability/autism (ID/A) supports in ten years. This has suppressed wages paid to the front line staff - the Direct Support Professionals (DSPs). We, the undersigned, ask you to fund rate increases for ID/A services so that we can begin to #FixTheDSPCrisis!
