As an occupational therapist supporting disabled students1 in higher education, I frequently came across barriers that impacted on students’ ability to succeed in university. I recognised that many issues were due to an inaccessible educational environment rather than impairment, that modifications for diverse learners supported all students and how my occupational therapy perspective could contribute to affecting institutional change through promoting and explaining universal design for learning. This article presents a perspective on how occupational therapy could contribute to universal design for learning (UDL), a specific educational application of universal design. It first explains the basic principles of UDL and then explores the contribution that occupational therapy could make to this area and how we could all benefit from it.
