Division of Services for People with Disabilities


DSPD is a part of the Utah Dept. of Human Services and offers services for people with disabilities to live, learn and work in the community throughout their life. Services could include respite, family support, day supports, supported employment, or residential support. This is supported by choosing one of two plans. With the “self-administered service”, the family may choose their own employees to provide respite, teach skills, or attend community activities. The “provider model” allows a company to provide the assistance needed. One must be diligent and proactive in acquiring services from DSPD.
