The Parents’ Place of Maryland (PPMD) began in 1990 as a grass-roots effort of families, professionals, and community leaders determined to provide resources, support, and information to parents of children with disabilities and special health care needs. Today, the Parents’ Place offers a variety of programs and services that continue to support families of children with disabilities and special health care needs.
Working with AmDee has been a wonderful experience. Our website has been a constant work in progress but with the help of AmDee, they have been able to take our website above and beyond where we expected.
PPMD staff identified that their existing website was missing features and functionality.
They also felt it was both difficult for their clients to find the needed information and it was difficult for staff to update.
Among the improvements they desired on their new site were:
They hired AmDee to rethink the navigation and restructure where necessary. We built a WordPress driven website with simplified navigation, clean lines and easy points of access for the most important information.
Additionally we ensured that the new website meets WCAG 2.0 AA requirements.
We began by identifying the existing user flow using feedback from case studies and analytical data and then designing a more intuitive flow based on our results.
Major changes that were completed by AmDee included:
Bounce Rate Reduction
User Growth Across All Device Types
