Accreditation Check:

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a conceptual framework based on neuroscience and learning science research that guides instructional design. Applicable for all ages, it is especially effective in addressing learner variability (i.e., anticipated differences and diversity among all learners) by engaging learners, offering multiple ways to access and understand information, and providing choice in how learners express what they know. The purpose of this course is to illustrate how to take full advantage of how the brain learns during a typical therapy or instructional session by applying the six steps of the UDL lesson planning process.
