We’ve been preparing for this for the last 2 years. A 504 medical plan for care, protocol and emergencies outlined to help manage David’s Type 1 diabetes while in school. Below are some charts I threw together: Diabetes for Dummies so his teachers can flip through their binder if they have questions or need help. Every child with diabetes has their own carb ratios, routine with their diabetes team (Endo, Educator, Pump Specialist if pumping, parents, and obviously child). Hopefully a child’s school will have a school nurse, however our Kindergarten Center doesn’t so we selected 3 people to be Trained Diabetes Personel for David while he is in school. After this week, I PROMISE I’ll be back to normal blogging and tweeting since it’s been kind of nuts with school starting and teachers wishing I could be in school every day with David.
