This is a difficult situation since the educators have to find a way to make sure that both students with and without disabilities are able to have access to the same information at the same time. While the researchers agree that using Universal Design (UD) within the education system would solve this issue, the method researched in implementing it varies between them. Some researchers have conducted research to show how the past experience as well as the training of educators in methods of UD in learning (UDL) impacts the learning of students with and without disabilities (Davies, Schelly, and Spooner; Vitelli; Black, Weinberg, and Brodwin, “A Pilot Study”). While some of the other researchers have assessed methods of how to better accommodate students with disabilities using strategies of UDL and UD in instruction (UDI) that will also benefit other students without disabilities (Tzivinikou; Burgstahler and Russo-Gleicher; Black, Weinberg, and Brodwin, “Perspectives”). Related to this, other researchers focused on how to better accommodate students with disabilities within an online…
