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.

UDL applies to all learners and all learning environments.
