UDL Series: Universal Design for Learning and the Every Student Succeeds Act

We hope this Universal Design for Learning (UDL) blog series is helping you find ways to use the framework in your classroom and that you are sharing what you learn and implement with others.

Now that we have introduced UDL and have seen how it can be used to meet the needs of all learners, let’s look at the federal guidance on using UDL in our classrooms.


Another perspective on this is

Read more about UDL in the ESSA and other federal laws and plans.

Reflect on your instruction that provides a “personalized, rigorous learning experience.”  How might the ESSA expectation influence your practice?  Could the UDL framework support your efforts?  Are you willing to share your successes with others?

Join us monthly through July as we discuss the following topics and how the UDL framework can help you close the gap in student achievement! This blog series will culminate with a workshop by Katie Novak, our UDL Distinguished Speaker, on July 27th, 2018!

  1. Thank you Kim for providing such an amazing avenue to guide, direct, and support both educators and administrators in their knowledge of UDL.
    I have been in the field of special education for almost 20 years now and have found throughout this time that special needs children are often misunderstood and unequally supported.

    The work of yourself and so many others at Region 13 is greatly appreciated.
