Review your child’s own needs with the school. Check that your child is able to follow the diabetes plan at school. Ask that the school nurse attend the meeting. If school staff is not familiar with diabetes, ask that the nurse do an in-service for all employees. This includes administrators, teachers, and support staff. Support staff includes school bus drivers, recess monitors, aides, and after-school coaches. Discuss the possibility of an individualized education plan (IEP) for your child. Understand your school's policies and emergency procedures related to diabetes. Schedule regular meetings with your child's teacher and school nurse to check that things are going well. You can also address any concerns at these meetings. Depending on your child's age and the classroom atmosphere, your child may want classmates taught about diabetes. This can be done by the school nurse. Or your child may want to help teach the class, depending on your child's age.
