DSP Evaluation Tools

Overview

The evaluations below cover the competencies that Direct Support Professionals are expected to demonstrate at various points in their careers.  Each type of evaluation (the DSP Initial Evaluation, DSP Annual Evaluation, and DSP Evaluation By Self-Advocate, Family Member, or Other Advocates ) includes a description of when and by whom the evaluation should be completed. Instructions are included with each form.
 

DSP Initial Evaluation

The DSP Initial Evaluation is to be completed by the supervisor, but can also be used as a self-evaluation by the DSP.  The Initial Evaluation includes the competencies that DSPs are expected to demonstrate within the first several months of employment.

DSP Annual Evaluation

The DSP Annual Evaluation is to be completed by the supervisor on an annual basis, but can also be used as a self-evaluation by the DSP. The Annual Evaluation includes the competencies from the Initial Evaluation, as well as the additional competencies that DSPs are expected to demonstrate within the first year of employment.

DSP Evaluation By Self-Advocate, Family Member, or Other Advocate

DSP Evaluation By Self-Advocate, Family Member, or Other Advocate
The Evaluation for Self-Advocates, Family Members, or Other Advocates is to be completed by the self-advocate receiving supports, their family, or other advocates as desired.  The person completing this evaluation should have observed the DSP enough times to provide a fair assessment of the DSP’s skill.
