"If a key goal of education is to prepare students to develop the higher-order skills necessary to compete in the 21st century workforce, educators should seek to remove unnecessary barriers rather than simply encouraging some children to try harder. The notion that students with dyslexia should simply allow more time for reading represents one of those unnecessary barriers."

If you read the latest books and blogs on inclusive education, you've probably heard a lot about the potential benefits of universal design for learning (UDL). Stronger student engagement. Sharper executive function skills. Increased access to the general curriculum for all students.
