Universal Design of Learning should be used in all classrooms that have students with disabilities, because it gives every student an equal opportunity to learn. UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone–not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs. Everyone learns a different way and this system explains the “how”, “why”, and “what”. The how is how we gather facts and categorize what we see, hear, and read. Identifying letters, words, or an author’s style are recognition tasks. The how is the planning and performing task and how we organize and express our ideas. The why is how we stay interested and engaged in activities. This is how teachers know what children strive in, where they may struggle, and how to challenge them. These concepts put together is what allows teachers to understand children with disabilities and then be able to teach these children by having an understanding of how they learn best.
