Students with Diabetes face special challenges in school, so it is important that staff be informed as to procedures, symptoms of concerns, and care of a child with diabetes. A previous GCN tutorial discussed the three main types of diabetes, their symptoms, and the basic information school staff needs to know about the care of a student with diabetes. Although federal law does not specifically mention Diabetes, some states have identified additional requirements beyond responsibilities of identification and delivery of appropriate services (Level I Training). These states require extra measures of personnel development, documentation, and care. Written by Michael Livovich, this tutorial details those requirements.
