Learn about our Customized Solutions

Designed in partnership with schools, districts, states and organizations to develop experts knowledgeable in UDL.

CAST professional learning products and services enable educators at all levels to improve their practice and enhance the systems in which they work using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and other research-based practices. Our professional learning offerings supply educators with the UDL-based knowledge, skills, strategies, and tools they need to maximize learning opportunities for all students. We support educators' efforts to meet the challenges of today's diverse classrooms by suggesting flexible instructional materials, methods, and assessments to meet these varied needs.

CAST's differentiating value is that our products and services embody the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. This is perhaps our most effective way to carry the UDL message forward, through the principled application and modeling of the framework in everything we do.
