ANN HEELAN Universal Design for Learning Learn About UDL

My Consultancy Service

As former CEO of AHEAD, I am highly experienced in supporting educational institutions to become more inclusive of all their students. Over the past five years I have promoted UDL as a way of designing education to get results and to bring out the best in students.

I work with leaders, directors, principals and staff who want to implement UDL in their institution, supporting them to get started and to develop UDL practice across the institution.
