Welcome to the Florida Developmental Disabilities Resources Website

The Florida Developmental Disabilities Resources Website is a public reporting resource for individuals with developmental disabilities living in or moving to the State of Florida. The primary purpose of this Website is to help individuals with developmental disabilities find a provider who best meets their needs.

Qlarant, a certified Quality Improvement Organization (QIO), works in partnership with the State of Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) and the Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD). It is important to note that funding for Qlarant does not reduce the amount of money APD has for services or the amount of services an individual may receive.

A primary goal in the Florida service system is to improve the quality of supports for Florida citizens with developmental disabilities.  The values supported and actively promoted within the system are:


  • rights,
  • choice,
  • full inclusion,
  • health and safety,
  • respect and dignity,
  • self-direction, and
  • satisfaction with all services and supports.
