Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curricum development that gives all individuals equal opportunity to learn. UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone - not a single, one-size-fits-all solution, but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs.

Early Literacy Initiative (SISEP): In New Jersey, all students will have access to equitable, high-quality, evidence-based instructional and behavioral practices to achieve academic excellence and self-actualization. By utilizing targeted and comprehensive school data and the Implementation Science framework to identify schools, New Jersey will establish literacy "Transformation Zones" to receive intensive coaching and support in early reading.
