Universal Design for Learning and Academic Interventions for Students With Emotional and Behavioral Disorders

The purpose of this systematic review of literature was to analyze interventions for students with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) for the presence of the three principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and the use of technology. UDL focuses on three core principles—representation, action and expression, and engagement—to help educators design motivating, accessible instruction and environments that will increase the participation and achievement of all learners, including those with special needs. Research indicates many interventions exhibit indicators associated with the principle of multiple means of engagement, but few studies embed multiple means of representation or action and expression within the specified interventions. This review found that 86% of academic interventions for students with EBD aligned with some part of the UDL framework. A discussion of implications for further research related to UDL implementation for classrooms (inclusive and self-contained) serving students with EBD follow.
