Look Inside the Book

This policy reader comprises a notably wide range of articles that address the challenges and opportunities facing policy makers as they consider UDL’s implications for federal, state, and local policy.

Praise

The use of UDL principles will ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to learn. These principles are not only helpful for students with disabilities but they benefit all students by increasing understanding and engagement. An important discussion of needed policy changes, A Policy Reader in Universal Design for Learning will help us incorporate these valuable elements into teaching diverse learners. — Dennis Van Roekel, president, National Education Association

This is a must-read collection for all those who want to understand the genesis and evolution of policy thinking about universal design for learning. One of the most exciting developments in pedagogy in a quarter century, UDL is an essential tool to improving teacher preparation, curriculum design, classroom instruction and assessments. This is a definitive work. — Madeleine Will, former U.S. assistant secretary of education; parent advocate

UDL has the capacity to profoundly remake our education system. This book is an essential primer on UDL and an exhortation for deployment of UDL into the mainstream of education policy. — Stephen P. Crosby, dean, McCormack Graduate School of Policy Studies, University of Massachusetts Boston
