The future is imagined by “pre-creating” the Presidential Address at the IDA Annual Conference in 2020. It begins by reviewing policy changes from 2004, including the National Instruction Materials Accessibility Standard (NIMAS), which led to fundamental changes in educational publishing and practices. This article was first published in the International Dyslexia Association, Perspectives on Language and Literacy, Winter 2010, and is also offered in a digital version, with UDL learning supports embedded throughout. Universal design for learning (UDL) is discussed as a theoretical framework to guide the design and development of learning environments that represent materials in flexible ways and offers a variety of options for learners to comprehend information, demonstrate their knowledge and skills, and be motivated to learn.
