What universal design is NOT

Universal design can do a lot to improve access to instruction or an assessment for a student, but it has its limitations. Universal design is not:

1. Individualized instruction
2. A replacement for a needed accommodation
3. A support that is required by law for a person with a disability who needs it

Universal design for learning and assessment is a good start, but students may still need accommodations.
