In recent years, the Universal Design for Learning to Support Students with Intellectual Disabilities (UDL) has been used as a methodological framework in our work with students with intellectual disabilities, providing a flexible developmental environment for integrated education and addressing the learning differences of students. It plays an important role in supporting and promoting learning in general education to all students, including students with intellectual disabilities. The concepts, implementation principles, and theoretical foundations of Universal Design for Learning are explored to reveal the practical implications of Universal Design for Learning as applied to students with intellectual disabilities.
