Inclusive education holds that equity must be the goal and the most precious value of today's educational systems. Under this premise, change and innovation in schools are inherent to this end in order to promote equal opportunities. These changes, among others, affect methodology and teaching strategies. Thus, educating without exclusion will also be the responsibility of teachers. The present research is approached from this perspective, with the objective of approaching the reality of the knowledge and use of didactic strategies that put into practice the universal design for learning (UDL) of basic education teachers. Thus, we present a descriptive study using a mixed methodology that offers both quantitative and qualitative data. The final sample is of 26 teachers, working with children between 7 and 12 years of age, from 4 educational establishments: 2 fiscomissional, 1 private and 1 intercultural bilingual, represented in 3 natural regions of Ecuador. The main results reflect the limited knowledge of the SAD and its principles and, on the other hand, the demand of teachers for specialized training in attention to diversity and educational inclusion through universal design for learning. The type of teaching intervention and the degree of involvement and participation of the students according to the geographical area of the country stand out.
