Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is one of the approaches that most effectively emphasize the concept of individual uniqueness, at international level: each of us perceives the world in a different way, acquires and processes information in different ways, has multiple intelligences and skills. The trend of contemporary teaching places the focus on the characteristics and needs of the learner, so it is essential to recognize and value each member belonging to the class, including pupils with disabilities and learning difficulties. With the UDL it is possible to overcome the idea of modifying teaching activities at a later stage for those students who present difficulties, it starts from a design phase that already contemplates the differences between learners. Moreover, the relationship between the UDL, Information and Communication Technologies and disability highlights that ICT can facilitate daily teaching practice, renewing it and promoting significant learning that promotes the educational success of each learner. The conscious use of ICT is in fact one of the actions proposed by the UDL, in particular to achieve the flexibility sought in truly inclusive curricula.
