Reviews

"One of the most significant advances in education in the last 50 years has been the emergence of UDL. This book will undoubtedly become the source for teachers who want to know how to successfully integrate UDL into their instruction. It describes ways to dramatically transform learning for all students by bringing UDL principles into every aspect of the instructional process. Teachers, administrators, teacher educators, and school psychologists are sure to treasure this book."--Donald D. Deshler, PhD, Williamson Family Distinguished Professor of Special Education and Director, Center for Research on Learning, University of Kansas

"An excellent resource for those seeking practical guidelines for applying UDL. The book provides a succinct explanation of UDL as a framework for curriculum and instruction, plus ideas for utilizing it in different content areas. An advantage of this book is its flexibility--educators can read it straight through or select specific chapters that meet their needs. This is a very readable source of essential information on UDL that will be useful for both classroom teachers and district-level personnel."--George Van Horn, EdD, Director of Special Education, Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation, Columbus, Indiana
