About ALDI

What is ALDI?

ALDI (Advancing Learning in Differentiation and Inclusion) was created in 2005 to assist the ten English school boards in Québec to provide support and professional development for resource teachers in the province. The project also included the professional development needs of school administrators and classroom teachers with regards to a collaborative school-based resource team approach.

Today, this provincial project directly supports resource teachers, administrators, classroom teachers and other school professionals in the area of special education within the English school boards in Québec. The project has a strong focus on the application of Universal Design for Learning.

Mission:

  • To develop a knowledge base and expertise in Universal Design for Learning framework, accessible instructional design and accessible instructional materials for resource teachers and school-based resource teams, through sustainable professional development opportunities and the development of a professional learning community.
