Our professional development experiences – our workshops – are the most popular UDO service. UDO offers outstanding experiences on the most relevant issues facing today's teachers, parents and child-serving professionals. We call them "experiences" because we deliver our cutting-edge material in an active, engaging, "brain friendly" manner that results in our participants "experiencing" rather than just receiving the exciting information we have to share.

A complete lisiting of our workshop titles is presented below; click on each to view the workshop summary and participant testimonials.
