wborders Posted March 30, 2011 Share Posted March 30, 2011 I may be working at a local special needs clinic with mentally and physically handicapped individuals. I was curious if PA admission boards will take my work experience here as "clinical experience". I would really love to work with the handicapped in my community, but at the same time I do need work experience for the programs I'm interested in. Would this be something I should/could pursue? Thanks for the opinions! Here is the job... ------- A Direct Support Professional (DSP) assists individuals with developmental disabilities to lead self-directed lives and contribute to the community. DSP’s assist with activities of daily living , and encourage attitudes and behaviors that enhance community inclusion. A DSP may provide supports to a person with a disability at home, work, school, church, and other community places. A DSP also acts as an advocate for the individual, in communicating their needs, self expression and goals. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
