About This Project
What We Believe
All children need to play and be creative. It makes them happier, confident, better learners and better friends. But some of them need a little help. That’s why we have developed the Create, Play, Move and Learn online resources. CreateCATT( our main company) is committed to getting all children to play creatively and to be the best they can be by supporting the adults who help them. CreateCATT also aims to help the 15% of children in low and middle income countries in Asia with disabilities and learning difficulties to get access to relevant and affordable resources to help these children and their families.
What We Do
Create, Play, Move and Learn is an online course for parents and professionals that helps them understand how children learn. It is filmed in rural India and aims to support children, both in rural and urban settings to create, play, move and learn and reach their full potential, in particular children who learn and develop differently.
The aim of our company and our new online course is a diffusion model that uses the Internet to make global best practice available in Asia, to help all children and particularly those with learning difficulties to lead more independent lives.
CreateCATT provides creative arts and play-based training, therapy and consultancy services for healthcare and education professionals, voluntary welfare organisations, and parents
