Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…I am excited and delighted with this perspective of addressing universal design for learning and teacher education….This texts helps with the transition toward helping us all learn how to remediate curriculum and instruction for all learners."

"UDL is such an important concept for all students that I am delighted to see a text with the UDL orientation and the concept infused throughout the book. Using this UDL approach to prepare teachers will sustain our efforts to promote UDL in the classroom for all students."

"…this book has the necessary ingredients to help teacher candidates address the issues of diversification in the classroom."

"…an introductory text for general education teachers who need to gain a general background on how to best serve and educate students with disabilities and different learning needs in their classrooms…it is chock full of functional strategies and ideas that teachers could utilize immediately in their classrooms."

"… a wealth of general information and specific strategies to support inclusion."
