Not sure where to begin when it comes time to talk to the principal, teachers and other school personnel about your child’s type 1 diabetes? Try copying one of these sample letters developed with the help of certified diabetes educator Angela Ginn, R.D., education coordinator for the University of Maryland Center for Diabetes and Endocrinology at Maryland General Hospital in Baltimore. Tweak and fill in the details for your son’s or daughter’s unique needs, then disseminate them to school staff -- either prior to your 504 Plan meeting or at the beginning of each new school year as an introduction to both your child and type 1 diabetes.
