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!

The original donation came with behavior cards for children. These were very clever and everyone i have given them to love them. Then there is the art book and teaching children how to draw. I wanted this for myself! With all the cuts in education, this organization is a wonderful add on to schools. It would be so nice if all the schools and children's organizations had these materials. Good luck to EDU Designs!!
