UDL assumes human variability. This means students with disabilities are not marginalized or stigmatized if they need an alternative means for interacting with the instructional content.
Heather Calomese, Director of Special Education at the CA Dept. of Education, and Kevin Schaefer, Director of Inclusive Practices at the Supporting Inclusive Practices Project, join Mindy Fattig, Senior Advisor at the CA Collaborative for Educational Excellence, to discuss Universal Design for Learning, Students with Disabilities, and the connections between the two. This video includes advice for teachers to begin classroom-level implementation of UDL and also for school and district leaders looking to implement and scale UDL in their local education agency.
