The UDL Guidelines can be used by educators, curriculum developers, researchers, parents, and anyone else who wants to implement the UDL framework in a learning environment. These guidelines offer a set of concrete suggestions that can be applied to any discipline or domain to ensure that all learners can access and participate in meaningful, challenging learning opportunities.

UDL and differentiated instruction are, without a doubt, similar concepts that share many of the same goals, ideas about learning, and even classroom practices. However, that is not to say that they are synonymous. The two differ in a few key aspects of their guiding principles, although I believe that they can work together and complement one another in a successful classroom.
