Some disabilities are not apparent to the untrained eye, but impact student experiences nonetheless. In this two-part series, the presenters will discuss how these invisible disabilities can impact a student’s experience and the role of instructors in supporting these students. In Part I, the presenters will discuss how universal design can be applied to better support all students, including those with learning-related disabilities. Participants will learn how to avoid instructional choices that adversely impact students with invisible disabilities. Participants will leave with practical suggestions for how to apply universal design principles in their course design and classroom activities to better serve students with invisible disabilities.
