What is Universal Design for Learning?Traditional curricula are ‘one-size-fits-all,’ and neglect the needs of a diverse student population. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a proactive approach that uses instructional strategies while taking advantage of flexible technologies (through learning materials) to support diverse learning needs. Three Guiding Principles:1.Provide multiple means of representing or presenting information.2.Provide flexible methods for students to express understanding.3.Provide flexible ways for students to engage in the learning process.
What is Universal Design for Learning?
Traditional curricula are ‘one-size-fits-all,’ and neglect the needs of a diverse student population.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a proactive approach that uses instructional strategies whiletaking advantage of flexible technologies (through learning materials) to support diverse learning needs.

Three Guiding Principles:
1.Provide multiple means of representing or presenting information.
2.Provide flexible methods for students to express understanding.
3.Provide flexible ways for students to engage in the learning process.
What is Assistive Technology (AT)?

IDEA defines an assistive technology device as:
...any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially off the shelf, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities. [20 U.S.C. Chapter 33, Section 1401 (25)]. This definition is broad and includes a range of devices from low technology to high technology items as well as software.
IDEA defines assistive technology services as:
...any service that directly assists an individual with a disability in the selection, acquisition, or use of an assistive technology device. [20 U.S.C. Chapter 33, Section 1401 (26)]

The Department of Education is required by law to consider and provide appropriate AT to students with disabilities when it supports their access to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE). All IEP's must indicate that AT has been considered to "to provide meaningful access to the general curriculum" (IDEA, 1997).
