School Bill of Rights for Children with Diabetes
Children with Diabetes require special care to remain healthy. This care must be maintained at schools.
Children with Diabetes have certain rights to care based on the Individuals with Disability Act (IDEA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Written accommodations and plan of care under federal law (Section 504 or Individualized Education Program (IEP)) are the best way to insure a Diabetic child's needs are met.
All schools receiving Federal funding must comply with IDEA and Section 504.
Diabetes National Institute is first and foremost a growing campaign against diabetes and a community effort to enrich the lives of people with diabetes. Our mission is to provide free services and create a warm and supportive atmosphere where people with diabetes, their families, and the public can engage, learn, and build a greater understanding of diabetes.
