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 classroom teachers with regards to a collaborative school-based resource team approach.

Today, this provincial project directly supports resource teachers, 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 (UDL) and Response to Intervention (RtI).


  • To provide guidance, consultation and classroom support to resource teachers and school-based resource teams in the area of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Response to Intervention (RTI) through sustainable professional development opportunities, the development of professional learning communities (PLCs) and collaborative inquiries.


  • To become a facilitator of collaboration in the area of Response to Intervention and Universal Design for Learning for school-based resource teams within the English school boards of Québec.
