A Comprehensive Approach to RTI: Embedding Universal Design for Learning and Technology

Response to intervention (Rtl) provides tiered levels of supports to all students and allows for increasingly more inten- sive and individualized instruction. Similarly, universal design for learning (UDL) addresses needs of students by proactively plan- ning for instructional, environmental, and technology supports to allow all students to effectively access and engage in instruction. Although these two frameworks are widely accepted as structures for supporting students with diverse learning needs, the relation- ship between them has not been adequately developed. This arti- cle describes how an ecological Rtl framework that integrates scientifically based instructional strategies, proactive instruc- tional design, and purposeful technology use can provide a more seamless support system for all students.

6 Surprising Bad Practices That Hurt Dyslexic Users - UX Movement

6 Surprising Bad Practices That Hurt Dyslexic Users - UX Movement | AdLit | Scoop.it

Web accessibility doesn’t only extend to color blind users, but dyslexic users too. Dyslexia is a learning disability that impairs a person’s fluency or accuracy in being able to read, write, and spell .

 

As designers, we can help dyslexic users read text more fluently and accurately by understanding and avoiding the bad design practices that hurt dyslexic users. Seeing things from their eyes can give us a better perspective on why accessible design is so important.

 

When dyslexic users read text, sometimes they can experience visual distortion effects [5]. These effects vary in degree from person to person, but they can make reading text that much harder. Below are six bad practices that are likely to cause these visual distortion effects for dyslexic users.

 

These bad practices can also make reading difficult for non-dyslexic users. But the effect they have on dyslexic users is much worse.
