Very exciting news with the Kennedy Center forum and the new UDL book!  Thank you for keeping us all informed.  I have shared many of your resources and materials with NC Arts Education leaders who are exploring connections with the arts and UDL.  Best always!

The VSA/Accessibility Department of the Kennedy Center just hosted a national forum on Examining the Intersection of Arts Education and Special Education on July 26 and 27. This event gathered "thought leaders" from the disabilities studies, arts education, and special education fields to make an action plan. UDL was included in the curriculum and professional development discussions. Let's see what happens next!

I cannot wait to get a copy. Is there an electronic version of the book or only a paper text copy?

That's great Don-- can't wait to get my hands on a copy!
