Universal design for learning (UDL) focuses on three core principles, (a) representation, (b) action and expression, and (c) engagement, to help educators design motivating, accessible instruction and environments to increase the participation and achievement of all learners, including those emotional disturbances. UDL was recently endorsed by the U. S. Department of Education through Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA; 2015), but there is little evidence on how or if UDL is being implemented with students who have emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD). This systematic review of literature investigated the presence of principles of universal design for learning in intervention research for students with EBD. We found studies with technology-based interventions aligned with some aspects of UDL, and any evidence-based interventions exhibit indicators associated with the principle of multiple means of representation, but few studies embed multiple means of engagement or action and expression within the specified interventions.
