    This is a very helpful kit. it is great as is but the backpack allows growth and customization. The visuals tools make it easier for children to connect with others’ emotions and identify emotions of their own. Delivery was reliable and David was very attentive and easy to work with.

    Great product!! It came to me at a time that I was searching for something exciting to add to a “trauma” training for teachers. It’s nice to add to “the behavioral toolbox” with such wonderful materials that will be useful in the classroom.
