Diabetes – Parents Passport For Schools
The InDependent Diabetes Trust [IDDT] is all too aware of the difficulties that children with diabetes and their parents face in everyday life when managing the condition. One area that proves particularly problematic is managing the condition at school. With this in mind, IDDT has produced a new, FREE booklet, the Parents Passport for Schools.
The passport has been designed to enable parents to inform schools about how to manage their child’s diabetes and in turn support schools to comply with SEN regulations. It also provides teachers with vital information about the condition. IDDT has produced similar documents for use in hospitals and also in care settings, such as residential care. As with all our leaflets, the passport is FREE.
The passport contains a wide range of information on how a child’s diabetes is managed, including:
- Dealing with high and low blood sugar levels.
- Food and mealtimes.
- Insulin administration and blood testing.
IDDT hopes that the passport will prove to be a valuable tool for families with a child with diabetes, teachers with a child with diabetes in their charge, school nurses and SEND coordinators.
IDDT also offer an information booklet called “Diabetes – What schools need to know” – click here for more information, and to order copies.
