Universal Design for Learning in Rehabilitation Education: Meeting the Needs for Equal Access to Electronic Course Resources and Online Learning
- As rehabilitation services and counseling educational programs aim to promote a philosophy of equal access for persons with disabilities within the classroom, in the profession, and within society in general, higher education accessibility measures should not be an afterthought but proactively sought throughout course design and delivery as an exemplar for future professional service provision and learning opportunity. Learning the basic principles of universal design will improve the ability of rehabilitation students to create an inclusive environment within a diverse field and working environment. Clear and easily achievable recommendations for course content and program materials accessibility compliance are outlined.
