Universal Design for the Digital Environment: Transforming the Institution  (Research based)

In this fully referenced article, the authors discuss digital access problems and a "digital divide" where people with disabilities are "unable to access content or functions on the Internet, even with assistive technologies that allow them to do so." This article addresses how to serve all constituents, issues regarding the policies of higher education institutions, how to add value, goals, and the need for leadership "to guide institutions in fundamentally committing to UDDE throughout all levels of the enterprise." The article was made possible from a Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE), U.S. Department of Education grant.

Excellent article for anyone looking to change the face of higher education to be more inclusive and universally designed. It covers a broad spectrum of considerations and is well laid out, sharable and readable.

The message I'll share...is that inclusion is extremely important for kids with and without disabilities.
