Date: September 15, 2016
Maedean Payne has been a Direct Support Professional at ARC Broward since 2002. Each year ARC Broward has watched her grow and adapt to the needs of the people she serves. Maedean spent years serving participants in the Intensive Behavioral Supports program and during this time she was able to show an unmeasured support of compassion, care, and professionalism. She was a significant part of teaching the participants skills that their families and caregivers never imagined their loved one could achieve, things like eating independently, participating in large group activities, and even speaking. Maedean was determined to focus on each participants’ skills and abilities rather than their barriers. In doing this she saw reduction in maladaptive behaviors in the classroom and watched the participants become more social, caring, and joyful.

Direct Support Professionals are Dedicated and Compassionate Workers

By: Dennis Haas, President/CEO
Date: September 7, 2016
Direct support professionals play an important role in providing support to thousands of people in our community with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). These dedicated and compassionate workers assist with a broad range of activities and they help ensure that individuals with IDD can be active participants in their communities. The job can be physically and emotionally draining. But the rewards while not necessarily monetary, are great--the ability to work directly with others who, in large measure because of you-- have a shot at a meaningful life.
