Key Educational Resources

It is important for parents, educators and service providers to maintain high standards and expectations in the educational environment for youth and adults with Down syndrome. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for designing curricula that enable all individuals to gain knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm for learning. UDL provides rich supports for learning and reduces barriers to the curriculum while maintaining high achievement standards for all. UDL addresses the need for multiple approaches to meet the needs of diverse learners. View UDL Resources
