Universal Design for Learning to Help All Children Read: Promoting Literacy for Learners with Disabilities (USAID)


This toolkit supports the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) educational framework, which guides the development of flexible learning environments that accommodate individuals with learning differences.

Providing evidence-based research and information on effective teaching techniques, the toolkit offers information on how to teach early literacy skills to students with different categories of disabilities, including how to best apply these theoretical approaches in practice in Low- and Moderate- Income Country (LMIC) settings. Although the toolkit provides information on multiple aspects of literacy (grammar, spelling, and writing), the techniques and interventions focus on the concept of reading as taught in the early years of primary school.

The UDL Toolkit is available in English, French, Spanish, and Arabic
