What is universal design?

Universal design is the design and construction of environments so that they can be accessed, understood, and used by ALL people to the greatest extent possible regardless of age, size, or ability and without the need for adaptation or special design. The seven principles of universal design include: equitable use, flexibility in use, simple and intuitive use, perceptible information, tolerance for error, low physical effort, size and space for approach and use. In short, everyone benefits from universal design.
