Children with Diabetes


tonyaewillis August 21, 2011

My son has Type 1 Diabetes and he is currently being homeschooled. I had a hard time entering him into the Public School system because of non caring and nurturing of teachers and nurses. Is there a parent out there with a child with the same special needs and if so how has it been entering your child in the NJ school system.

Hi tonyaewillis,

I sympathize with your situation. In my school district they've recently begun exploring the idea of having volunteers provide insulin shots because there are no nurses on campus--or nurses only come on specific days.

I suggest you contact the Juvenile Diabetes organization in your area, and see if there is a support group to help you.

Good luck.
