Zoos Victoria, in an endeavor to comply with legislation regarding disability inclusion, has sought to make adaptations to its educational programs. Existing methods for teaching students with disabilities were identified through interviews with school administrators, Victorian Department of Education officers, zoo and museum staff, and special education teachers. Specific programming at Zoos Victoria was assessed to identify accessibility issues and barriers to learning for students with disabilities. The knowledge gained from this research was used to develop a framework for adapting educational programs at the zoo. The framework encompasses principles of universal design as well as specific accommodations for students with mobility, hearing, vision, and cognitive impairments. -
