Reaching All Students in General and Special Education

Universal Design for Learning employs a framework that maximizes learning opportunities for all students, whether they have disabilities, are non-native English speakers or are gifted. Using the UDL framework, teachers strengthen inclusive classrooms and expand understanding of student ability while considering the role of the Common Core Standards in this context. This specialization is appropriate for special education and general education K-12 teachers who want to give students safe spaces, flexible learning choices, and effective paths to educational goals.

Employ the UDL framework in your classroom as you challenge the status quo, remove curriculum barriers, present educational goals in interesting ways and engage all students equitably!
