Universal Design is a term used for the broad range of ideas that serve to create buildings, products, and environments that are inherently accessible to the widest range of people possible: older people, people with disabilities, and people without disabilities.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles - a blueprint - for developing a curriculum that creates instructional goals, assessments, methods, and materials that support learning and access for everyone. It is a flexible approach that is organized around the principles of Engagement, Representation, and Action/Expression. UDL customizes and adjusts classrooms and instruction in response to individual needs and interests.
