Founded in 1984, the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) is an organization that is committed to expanding “learning opportunities for all individuals, especially those with disabilities, through the research and development of innovative, technology-based educational resources and strategies”. On their homepage, visitors can learn about their various initiatives, which include significant research projects, professional development, policy implementation, and publications. The publications area is a good place to start, and visitors can read such articles as “Twenty online resources on reading with comprehension and engagement” and “Teaching students to evaluate Internet information critically”. Visitors may also wish to examine the Teaching Every Student website that CAST has created, as it provides a detailed explanation of the teaching model that they have named “Universal Design for Learning”.
