Applying Universal Design to Address the Needs of Postsecondary Students on the Autism Spectrum

By comparing instructional strategies that benefit students with ASD to UD strategies reported in the literature, the authors illustrate how a teaching method that benefits a student with a specific disability such as ASD can inspire the development of a UD strategy designed to benefit all students. Potential benefits of the UD approach for students with ASD are revealed and recommendations are made for future research as well as professional development and support for faculty that can be delivered and/or promoted by disability support personnel.  (Sheryl Burgstahler  and (Rose) Rosalie J. Russo-Gleicher. Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, 28(2), 199 - 212)
