    WATERBURY, Conn., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Therap Services will host its

 integral part of care-giving agencies as they work directly with persons
 with disabilities. Therap strives to ensure maximum participation by Direct
 Support Professionals at conferences and workshops so that they can take
 part in improving and designing the documentation and reporting process.
     "The 2nd DSP conference will provide a host of opportunities for Direct

 with other Direct Support Professionals who are Therap users," said Justin
 Brockie, Director of Customer Support and Training.
     One of the special features of the 2nd Direct Support Professionals
 conference will be a presentation and discussion session by users of Therap
 applications. Therap users are expected to make presentations on their
 knowledge and experience in using the Therap system. Therap presenters
 include Kara Blevins and Maureen Noonan, two experienced developmental
 disability industry clinicians, who themselves were Direct Support
 Professionals. Among the many presenters, Kate Ramlow from Catholic
