Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging at Family Voices
The design of an environment so that it can be accessed, understood, and used to the greatest extent possible by all people regardless of their age, size, ability or disability, or other factors.
What is Universal Design?
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) focuses on improving and optimizing the design of instructional goals, methods, and materials that can be customized and adjusted to meet individual needs.
How do we address Universal Design?
Partner with the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST), creator of UDL guidelines, and other similar organizations.
Use the resources from CAST’s National Center on Accessible Educational Materials for Learning to provide technical assistance to Family Voices staff and create training materials that are accessible and align with UDL principles.
