The Direct Support Workforce: A crisis or serious systems flaw?

For nearly 30 years turnover rates have been about 50% and vacancy rates about 5% in community services and supports for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. For nearly 30 years we have been calling this a crisis. It’s more than a crisis. It’s a deep and widely ignored systems flaw that is now getting more attention because of the shrinking pool of candidates from which employers can choose. There are solutions. Messages need to change and our policy makers and elected officials need to be held accountable. This session will provide data based observations about the problem, identify solutions and suggest key messages and actions for resolution.
