Review the protections afforded to students/children with diabetes in this 90-minute session. Students/children with diabetes spend a significant amount of time in daycare and/or school settings, away from their parents who are their primary caregivers. School personnel must understand diabetes and be able to provide necessary care if needed. Diabetes educators can provide their expertise to bridge the gap between families and schools.
The purpose of this activity is to give diabetes educators increased knowledge about the protections afforded to students with diabetes as well as ways to help out both families and school personnel
At the end of this presentation, participants will
be able to:
- Describe the laws that protect students with diabetes
- Explain the different needs of students based on age and/or ability
- List resources available to families as well as diabetes educators
