This article aims at presenting primary school teachers with a simple-to-use accessibility framework for creating e-learning resources suitable for SEN (Special Educational Needs) pupil’s use in a classroom environment. A synopsis is offered addressing a selection of the problems experienced by teachers adopting and using general I.C.T (Information Communication Technology) and Special Educational Technology in the primary school classroom.

The next section of the article discusses the issues surrounding the planning of a teaching resource encompassing four specific themes, namely,
(a) choosing a suitable application for e-resource creation;
(b) selecting and using specific tools to incorporate interactivity;
(c) adopting principles of accessibility and U.D.L (Universal Design for Learning) guidelines and
(d) reusing and re-purposing the e-learning resource.

One specific strategy of planning and developing an e-learning resource focusing on using an effective practice planner tool and storyboard techniques is illustrated, followed by discussing how the teaching innovation can be justified. The article concludes by suggesting one possible method of implementing and evaluating an e-learning classroom resource.
