We hold the following Core Values: 

*Competent and Informed Membership -  DASP provides opportunities for its membership to collaborate across the state and obtain a wide range of skills necessary to support all students.

*Whole-Child Approach -  DASP understands the importance of supporting all of a child’s unique needs and partnering with their families and communities to do so.

*Collaborative Relationships - DASP partners with related organizations, agencies, and others to work towards similar goals.
