Inclusive Design

Every Child. Every Class. Every Day.


Inclusive Design supports the education of all students by focusing on critical aspects of inclusive learning environments. Our current focus is Universal Design for Learning (UDL), an evidence-based framework for systematically addressing learner variability. We have created the Universal Design for Learning Academy (UDLA), a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) for implementing UDL at the classroom, site, and district levels. Other efforts to support inclusion include the LACOE Special Education Symposium, the Theory and Practice Livebinder of general and special education resources, and hosting workshops on topics such as ELL's with disabilities, standards-aligned instruction for students with moderate-to-severe disabilities, and more.
