I’ve become a big fan of a website called Quality Mall. Quality Mall is a place where you can find lots of free information, products, services, programs and contacts about person-centered supports for people with developmental disabilities of all ages.
All across Quality Mall are several “stores” that have departments you can look through to learn about positive ways to support people with developmental disabilities live, work and participate in our communities and improve the quality of those supports, as well as support their families. Quality Mall’s stores include national and international information, so no matter where you are or what you are looking for, there is always some item or resource near you.
As of this writing, Quality Mall currently has 1,733 products, services, programs and more listed—including a link to my disability life transition coaching practice, BUTTERFLYWHEEL Life Transition Coaching. Also, if you provide a program, service or anything else to increase the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities, you too can submit your information to Quality Mall to be listed in their growing database.
Browsing Quality Mall is like one-stop shop for all areas of life including such topics as: raising children with developmental disabilities, health care, social and intimate relationships, person-centered planning support, elder care, leisure and recreational activity ideas and offerings across the country, just to name a few.
No matter what you are looking for for yourself or a loved one with a developmental disability, Quality Mall has an extensive and wide-ranging database for you to search and find the information you need.
If there’s an item on Quality Mall that you strongly support and value, you can nominate that entry in Quality Mall’s listing to help direct traffic to that site or piece of information.
Quality Mall also has newsletter and email sign up option for the latest updates to the stores in Quality Mall’s database. Signing up is free.
