Beaumont Children’s is committed to improving the lives of children with Type 1 diabetes. As part of this commitment, the Beaumont pediatric endocrinology team is pleased to offer a collection of Type 1 diabetes resources for parents and non-medical personnel in schools.
It takes a team to provide a safe and healthy school environment for students with Type 1 diabetes. We all need to help. Parents, school personnel, doctors and nurses need to work together.
We encourage parents of children with Type 1 diabetes to discuss plans for their children’s care with the principal or 504 building coordinator at the school.
This informational video is titled Managing Type 1 Diabetes in Schools: A Guide for Non-Medical Personnel in Schools. The video is not intended to replace formal training. It is intended to be used in conjunction with formal training from either a school nurse or parents of the student with Type 1 diabetes. The video provides an overview for non-medical personnel in schools on how to provide care for a student with Type 1 diabetes in the school setting.
This video is accompanied by a guide to treating children with Type 1 diabetes in the school setting. This guide provides step-by-step instructions for the materials taught throughout the video.
