Universal Design for Learning takes physical and cognitive barriers into consideration when designing the curriculum. This design presents subject matter in different ways, such as visual, auditory, and written. The complexity of material is also adjusted. The objective of the material is met by presenting different ways of accessing the material.

The Universal Design for Learning is an educational framework that is researched based. The information presented is meant to be rigorous for all learners. Technology is encouraged in the classroom. Several organizations are integrating the methods of teaching by using technology. These programs can benefit students with learning disabilities, as well as regular education students.

The Universal Design for Learning allows curriculum that is designed with a diverse learning environment in mind. It will allow all students to learn at their particular level of comfort while addressing different learning needs.

The ability to design instruction according to the needs of students using technology is a great step in the direction of accommodating all learners. All students learn in different ways because of environment, background, and learning experiences. The Universal Design for Learning removes the barriers that hold many students back.
