Universal Design for Learning


To meet Universal Design principles, educational processes should:
1.    Be accessible and fair.
2.    Provide flexibility in use, participation, and presentation.
3.    Be straightforward and consistent.
4.    Be explicitly presented and readily perceived.
5.    Provide a supportive learning environment.
6.    Minimize unnecessary physical effort or requirements.
7.    Ensure a learning space that accommodates both students and instructional methods.

The beneficiaries of Universal Design in education include:
•    Students with special needs, including those with disabilities.
•    Students with English as a second language.
•    The general population of students, all of whom will benefit from the application of Universal Design principles.
