UDL and Art Education for Students with Disabilities and Physical Impairments

Abstract

This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher was written by Josefina M. Beyra of Florida International University. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the effects of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in the art classroom. UDL is a research-based approach that makes learning accessible to diverse students that has been practiced for decades yet it is not widely known. Unfortunately, the current literature on art education as an inclusive classroom is also limited. Because art elective courses serve large populations of students with disabilities, it is crucial that art teachers and all teachers that incorporate the arts are aware of UDL as an approach to teaching diverse students.
