We are pleased to present Recognizing Excellence, an AHRC NYC publication celebrating the resourcefulness, leadership, creativity, thoughtfulness, teamwork, dedication, communication skills, and professionalism that Direct Support Professionals bring to their work.   DSPs are the backbone of organizations in our field, and their dedication and commitment to the people who they support go beyond any commitment to a job.

In this edition, we introduce Job Coach, Hindou Kane; Art Consultant, Lina Vezzani-Katano; and Community Support Professionals, Melanie FreemanNixon Darbouze and Peter Doherty. Each of these professionals is using their talents to make sure that people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities lead rich lives.
