Seizing the Day: Young Man Undaunted By Developmental Disabilities

For inspiration, check out the story of Kyle Sanchez, a young man with a developmental disability who was recently named the 2009 Direct Support Professional (DSPs) of the Year for Colorado by ANCOR (the American Network of Community Options and Resources). ANCOR is working hard to increase the professionalism and wages of DSPs across the country. For more information on ANCOR's efforts, including H.R.868, the Direct Support Professionals Fairness and Security Act of 2009, giving states a much-needed option to secure additional federal dollars for the direct support workforce, visit youneedtoknowme.org
