Social Work Resources

March is National  Professional Social Work Month!

The National Association of Social Workers states that this is “an opportunity to highlight the important contributions they make to society.”

Social Workers work hard to improve the lives of others including people with developmental disabilities. Some of the ways that social workers make a difference and help people with special needs include:

  • Serve as advocates

  • Locate social services and resources for families

  • Provide counseling for individuals with disabilities, families and staff

  • Manage a caseload

  • Conduct assessments

  • Coordinate new admissions and intakes

    In honor of National Professional Social Work Month, I have included some social work resources links
