This series is designed for the Local Education Agencies (LEAs) that were awarded Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Optimizing Implementation Grants from the PA Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education. The ultimate goal is to enhance the LEAs’ use of UDL methodologies across all stakeholders (staff, student, family, administrator) through customized coaching and technical assistance resulting in a more robust continuum of services and improved least restrictive environment (LRE) outcomes for students with disabilities.


  • Support the development/enhancement of a shared vision for improvement (among stakeholders) to enhance equity, accessibility, and student outcomes
  • Promote expert learning by removing barriers within the educational environment
  • Increase educators’ responsiveness to learner variability by equipping them with tools to provide multiple means of engagement, representation, and action and expression
  • Enhance administrative knowledge of UDL to build systemic change through evaluation of educator effectiveness and implementation of successful student programming that is equitable to ALL
