Description

When goals, assessments, methods and materials are proactively designed and implemented according to the principles and practices of UDL, barriers to learning are lowered for  many learners, but what about learners with more intensive support needs? Come build upon the firm foundation of UDL to identify remaining barriers that some students experience and consider how AT, accessible materials and technologies, and other supports and services can break down the barriers to the achievement of all students.
