About this website
Diabetes at School is a resource for families, schools and caregivers to help school-aged children with type 1 diabetes, a chronic disease where the pancreas no longer produces insulin. We have three goals with this site.
- Safety: Above all, children and youth with type 1 diabetes must be safe at school. That means people who have contact with students are aware of the potential risks, and what to do if there is an emergency.
- Support: Children and youth with type 1 diabetes will need varying levels of support with their disease, and people who provide that support need training and resources.
- Success: With planning, awareness and education, all students with type 1 diabetes can have a positive and full school experience.
