Quality of Life: Do Something About It

We throw the words "quality of life" around a lot in our field. We will talk about putting those words, or this concept, into action through small everyday changes and through understanding happiness behaviors.  

Please note that some early episodes will now be temporarily unavailable on streaming platforms. All episodes will still be available to listen to on

In A Supporter's Toolbox, Dr. Stacy Nonnemacher translates what we know about natural human experiences and the world of behavioral science into strategies, tips, and interventions for supporters. Families, direct support professionals, and other supporters are encouraged to follow this podcast to gain additional tools to use tomorrow and beyond as you strive to provide the best supports to people with disabilities. Join us each week for a fun and engaging discussion on how to best care for yourself and those you support.
