The design of Dynamic Learning Maps® (DLM®) assessments maximizes accessibility for all students with significant cognitive disabilities. The test development process includes multiple reviews to address potential accessibility barriers, and DLM assessments include a variety of accessibility tools and supports during the assessment to help fit each student’s needs and preferences. Some of these tools and supports are delivered through the KITE™ system while others are provided externally. Decisions about the use of these tools and supports are made for each student with input from an individualized education program team. The DLM Accessibility Manual serves as a guide on selecting, using, and evaluating these tools and supports.
