      • Universal Design for Learning is a method and practice for designing learning environments which are flexible enough to
        • capitalize upon the natural strengths and talents of,
        • provide scaffolding to improve strategies and skills for,
        • and incorporate supports to allow for the overcoming of the barriers inherent in traditional curricula for
      • all students, especially those with disabilities and from diverse backgrounds and lived experiences.

      • “ One of the main attractions of UDL is that it is not deficit oriented. It doesn’t label or stigmatize learners. Moreover, it completely avoids the entrapments occasioned by the temptation to blame the learner for not learning…. When they encounter a learning environment developed according to the UDL principles, necessary knowledge and skill can be acquired through the sheer flexibility of that environment. A UDL environment affords learning because the learner’s central nervous system is able to resonate to the seemingly infinite possibilities inherent in that environment. Limitations are thus confined to the design of the learning environment and not the capacity of the learner.”
      • Dr. Richard Jackson

      • “ The environment should have enough features in place so that when the student is aware of the of the support he or she needs, that support is available.”
      • - Dr. Patrick Proctor
      • Some of the supports and scaffolding especially useful for bilingual learners are:
      • L1 translations
      • Text-graph integrations
      • Idioms
      • Relevant terms (vocabulary)
