Welcome to the Universal Design Lab (uLab)
Universal Design Lab at Portland State University
We believe in the unique potential of all people. We believe in using human centered design to make important parts of life more accessible.
We are focused on design and intervention work that makes the world a more universally accessible place. At the core, our work centers on accessibility, specifically in the areas of (1) Augmentative and Alternative Communication, (2) Assistive Technology, and (3) Universal Design for Learning. Specifically, we are working to harness the power of mHealth technologies.
We concentrate our efforts on research and development, educational content, and community service. Samuel Sennott, Ph.D. founded the uLab upon accepting a faculty position at PSU, after co-creating the popular AAC app Proloquo2Go.
