What Your Children’s Teachers Need to Know
While you’re enjoying those last days of summer, it may be time to start thinking about school. Besides doing the usual shopping for school supplies and new clothes, remember to prepare your child’s teachers for what they need to know about diabetes. Here are some helpful resources:
- National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) Helping the Student with Diabetes Succeed; A Guide for School Personnel – The NDEP developed this guide to educate and inform school personnel about diabetes, how it is managed, and how each member of the school staff can help meet the needs of students with the disease.
- American Diabetes Association (ADA) School Staff Training Programs
- Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation: Life with Diabetes: Type 1 Diabetes in School
