Custom Information Packet Template

Create a custom, highly personalized, and effective information packet about your child who struggles with issues related to complex early childhood trauma exposure with this easy to use template!

One of the most frustrating things many parents of kids who affected by issues related to complex developmental trauma, including Reactive Attachment Disorder, FASD, Complex PTSD, and the like face is trying to help others on the outside understand just how complex these issues really are and what they can do to help rather than hinder our child. 

After much trial and error, including some dismal flops, I came up with a method for sharing information about my child and their issues that has consistently worked very well for many years, especially with the schools.  A big part of what works for us involves creating a highly personalized, illustrated information packet that outlines my child’s issues and needs, how to approach them, AND what they can do to help my child succeed, particularly in a school setting.

Information Packet Template Features

  • Format:  Fully customizable Microsoft Word document that is easy to edit and adjust to suit your child’s needs, conditions, and situation.
  • Suitability:  Template includes full sample text explaining issues such as Reactive Attachment Disorder, Complex PTSD, FASD, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, learning disabilities, mood disorders, and common behavior problems.
  • Adaptability:  This template works for kids of all ages and can easily grow with them over the years and schools and needs change
  • Speed:  Create a meaningful and effective document about your child in less than an afternoon, rather than the days it used to take me to put together. At my house, that is worth its weight in gold!
  • Specific:  Offers ideas on what teachers and others who work closely with your child can do (and not do) to best help your child succeed, especially in a school setting. 
  • Engaging:  Illustrative images are included that correspond with each section of text. You are welcome to use the images provided or change them out and add your own.
  • Multi-Sensory Approach:  The template is set up to offer a multi-sensory approach that works for many different learning styles and encourages the receivers to pay attention, listen to what we have to say, engage in discussions, and cooperate. It’s also a great model for demonstrating a multi-sensory teaching approach that works well for many of our kids who struggle with more traditional methods.

Diana Whiteheart - Parent Coach serving moms of children affected by reactive attachment disorder, complex PTSD, Developmental trauma disorder, FASD, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and other issues related to early childhood trauma exposure.Hi! I’m Diana. I’m a wife, a mom to 3 awesome (but challenging) kids, and I’m a certified parent and family coach. Two of my children came to me through adoption and struggle with all sorts of issues including FASD, RAD, ADHD, PTSD, mood disorders, learning disabilities, and a whole lot more.  Sometimes they’re my greatest challenge and always my greatest gifts. Though we’re far from perfect and we still have our less than stellar days, we are healing and we are happy. Our family is living proof that it can and does happen!

I’d love to help you find your way out, too!  I have a passion for helping hurting, exhausted moms families find their way out of darkness and chaos and enjoy a greater sense of connection, peace, and harmony in their lives and in their homes. Learn more at
