How the resources are organized
Throughout all of the handouts, we have made readability a priority, so that laypersons without formal mental health training will find them useful.

If you are seeking general suggestions and information regarding children and trauma, check the general resources section.

If you want suggestions for children under the age of seven, you will want to check out the resources for young children.

For children ages 7-12, we suggest the resources for elementary school-aged children.

Teenagers' needs are addressed in the documents under that section.
