The materials presented were outstanding. Students responded favorably to the information and the way it was presented. Ruth is a delightful soul, she loves what she does and is a people person. I especially appreciate her positive approach to nurturing children.

As a Special Education Teacher (SDC-high school), I was deeply impressed with how Ruth was able to actively engage my students with art projects and music. The lessons were valuable, fun, and rewarding for the students. I strongly strongly recommend Ruth for art lessons, art books, or anything related to this. If she can actively engage approximately 20 students with severe developmental delays, low attention spans, and difficulties with holding pencils for over 90 minutes, I cannot help but wonder how much other populations would love this!!! Highest recommendation!!!!!

I used your Positive Behavioral Charts and on the first day my daughter was potty trained as a result of the sticker reward benefit. I am so pleased with your charts that I have recommended your site to all my friends!

Being a mom to a child with ADHD is tough. However, through this website, I have learned how important is in to engage your child through 1 on 1 parent interaction no matter how hectic life gets!

I am the worst artist, so I always avoid drawing when I teach. However, after your presentation, I learned that art can be simple and the results are amazing. I never knew that stick figures can be drawn to show actions and emotions. I just love your presentation. Thanks for opening up my view and understanding in art.

Children need to be valued, nurtured and guided and EduDesigns helps do all of these things. I have made great use of the behavior charts with my 5 children (ages 2 through 9). They have helped me organize our house and teach responsibility in a loving way. Our children's creativity also needs to be fostered by providing a good arts education. This does it! Thank you!

I customized and printed out the good behavior chart in hopes my fiance and I will help our 7 year old daughter learn consistency, and responsibility. It has been 3 months so far now, and she has been achieving 85% of her points VS when we started she was only reaching about 50% of her points. This system works very well especially when you give choices in the rewards they get when they reach certain points, and become consistent.
