Independent Consultant
Montgomery County Maryland
Denise DeCoste is an occupational therapist and a special educator with 30 years of experience in the field of assistive technology (AT). She led two AT teams (InterACT and HIAT) in Montgomery County Maryland Public Schools for 22 years. She was instrumental in building awareness of universal design for learning across her district and in the systematic implementation of UDL in MCPS schools.

Dr. DeCoste was the governor appointed chair of the Maryland UDL Task Force resulting in a report entitled “A Route for Every Learner” which led to the establishment of State DOE regulations that require the incorporation of the UDL framework into the curricula in Maryland public schools.

Denise is the author of numerous books and chapters on assistive technology, most recently a chapter on best practices in assistive technology for the American Occupational Therapy Association. Currently, she is an independent consultant providing training and mentoring on assistive technology topics and UDL implementation.
