Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as primary prevention for addressing challenging student behavior

Research shows that utilization of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can assist students in the mastery of academic content material. The principles of UDL are also highly effective as primary prevention for challenging classroom behavior. The UDL framework can be implemented as a universal tier 1 PBIS classroom strategy to successfully decrease the occurrences of behaviors of concern while increasing student engagement. The UDL framework values diversity by providing multiple means to success for students to “show what they know”, thereby reducing barriers.
