I live and work in Goa in India, running a multidisciplinary child development and family guidance centre called Sethu, for children with developmental, behavioral, educational and emotional difficulties. What I love best about your website and newsletter is that they are filled with practical, realistic and backed-by-experience advice. I can apply your suggestions in resource poor environments. The families I work with often do not have the finances or access to professional services. However with your guidance, they feel empowered to do the best they can. We need more resources like Edu Designs that offer professional help without commercial interests in mind. Thank you for all you do!
Excellent experience! Excellent people. They really know what they are doing.

Thank you! You are helping, too!
EDU DESIGNS aims at introducing and fomenting art aimed at children, a task made essential given the drastic cuts to the arts curriculum in so many school systems. Ruth Elliot, the spark plug powering EDU DESIGNS is truly dedicated to not only bring art to children but also helping parents to participate; in the process building a bond between parents and children
Thank you SO much for sharing your kind words and adding insight to the process of what we are doing to help children's character development. I appreciate you! Ruth
Today's kids are going up in a media driven world designed specifically to command their full attention and stimulate their senses with out providing any fundamental skill sets or tools a child needs. EDU Designs want to help parents, caregivers and teachers how to creatively incorporate character building through simple delivery methods. The behavior charts made me realize how much I acknowledged the "negative" behaviors and had all but forgotten to reward the positive. I am grateful. The rewards have made a huge difference in my kids behavior and now we are spending a lot more "quality" time together !!
