November 8 – Universal Design for Learning – Click here to register
Should I provide modifications for students with special needs or should I design learning opportunities that benefit all students?
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an educational approach that benefits all students by reducing barriers to learning and
addressing the different learning needs of students. UDL describes three main principles to guide the selection and development of
learning environments, resources and activities that support individual learning differences and reduce curricular barriers: multiple
means of engagement, multiple means of representation and multiple means of action and expression. Through this session we will
develop an increased awareness and understanding needed to implement flexible and responsive learning experiences that
acknowledge every student’s individual learning needs.

Understanding and promoting positive mental health in schools is a shared responsibility of parents, educators and community partners. Physically and emotionally healthy students are more likely to be successful in school and in life. How can we as LST work within our schools and classes to support mental wellness?
