Universal Design for Employment                                     

This session will focus on how to utilize the UDL Principles (Multiple Means of Engagement, Representation, and Action & Expression) as well as the Seven Principles of Universal Design during transition and into the area of employment. Real world examples will be shared to highlight ways businesses of all sizes can create a more inclusive environment. These accommodation solutions will be no-tech, low tech and high tech and across all areas of disability.

Key Learning Outcomes
  • Participants will be able to describe the three principles of UDL and how to apply these principles in the employment arena.
  • Participants will learn at least two methods to assess and process the challenges in work experiences or training settings.
  • Participants will be able to describe the steps needed to design programs that are accessible to as many transition aged youth and adults as possible from the start – even before disability-specific information is available.
