AT & UDL Loan Library - Online Resource
As a part of Florida's MTSS Projects, this online resource library is designed to help districts and schools implement a universal, differentiated core curriculum based on the Florida Standards. The assistive technologies available in this library can be used to identify which technologies will best support students with disabilities to participate and progress in the core curriculum. The Universal Design for Learning technologies can be used to identify effective, instructional pedagogies that support highly effective learning environments.
AT-UDL Resource Library - Online Resource
This is an online library, filled with information and resources on assistive technology, accessible instructional materials, augmentative communication, learning technologies, and Universal Design for Learning.
