Marg: Her private school only has a nurse four days a week and no substitute if she is out a day. Is the school required to have a full time nurse to accommodate ”this child with juvenile diabetes?

Sophie’s advice about the Diabetes Assoc. is good. The Diabetes Association is aware that some schools are not inclined to help children with diabetes.

This link will take you to the Parents and Kids section of the American Diabetes Association: http://www.diabetes.org/living-with-diabetes/parents-and-kids/?
where you will find good advice about how to keep kids safe at school.

The diabetes association can work with you on this. Also you can call the health office within your state ed department. The key is to figure out what specific supports your child needs and to work with the school to figure out how to get those supports in place. With creativity and teamwork. Also hopefully your child’s doctor is in the loop.
