Universal Design for Learning

Universal Design for Learning is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. UDL recognizes that the way individuals learn can be unique.

Our focus is on a student’s strengths and  providing flexible approaches, accommodations and supports that can be customized and adjusted to meet an individual student's needs.

In order to develop flexible learning environments that can accommodate individual learning differences, there are three main principles of Universal Design for Learning that we incorporate in designing learning environments.  Expectations are high for all learners and multiple pathways are used to ensure student success
