Description:

Young children entering school for the first time have many different physical and learning needs.  How can the teachers meet the needs of a busy classroom of diverse learners? How can we support our children regardless of their ability so that each child can have the opportunity to “participate in a broad range of activities and contexts”?  Universal Design for Learning (UDL) facilitates an inclusive preschool environment by ensuring equitable access and meaningful participation through flexible and creative approaches within developmentally appropriate activities.  This webinar explores practical application of UDL principles within a preschool routine.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will identify multiple means of representation

Participants will identify ways to provide multiple means of action and expression.

Participants will identify ways to provide multiple means of engagement.
