ACCESS-ed and UDE

The ACCESS-ed Project focuses on several campus interventions to improve the postsecondary education success of students with disabilities. However, as we know, the typical intervention models provide service only to students with declared disabilities. Thus, to address the fundamental reality that many students with disabilities do not declare their disability or may not have been diagnosed as having a disability, the ACCESS-ed Project includes an emphasis on Universal Design in Education. UDE also has the side benefit of making education more accessible for all students, including those students at risk, but without disabilities, such as English as second language students and even students without any educational challenges.

Universal Design in Higher Education  (PowerPoint Presentation)

"...Even though I was flunking English because I couldn't spell; in my high school year book under ambitions I had written 'Author'. When I went off to college I ran into a guy at the University of Oregon named Ralph Salisbury who was my first creative writing instructor and he turned all the lights on for me. He was the first teacher in all my years who actually said I had talent. Some people don't know this, but I have dyslexia."
