Cast.org links to its own pages and materials.

Accuracy (Does Information appear accurate? Any Bias or One-Sided Viewpoints Noted?):

This is the first I've heard of UDL. The site is promoting its own educational reform movement so that is cast.org's bias.

Conclusions: Do You Feel This Site is a Valuable Resource? Justify Your Answer.

Cast.org has a statistical statement that 5% of middle school disabled students are proficient in writing. However, looking at cast.org's information I infer that the UDL principles are intended for all children.
