I am brand new to this site, but already can tell I will learn so much from it! My daughter, Jillian, is 5 and was diagnosed with t1 on Nov. 16th, 2010. It has been very hard. We live in a small town, with very little resources and travel 3 hrs to Philadelphia, PA to get her care. I want her to have the best possible care right now.
My first post on here is about Kindergarten. RIght now she is in pre-k for 2.5 hrs in the morning. Other than being trained on lows, glucagon, and her snacks; there is little to be done away from me.
I wanted to know what tips other parents have for me about going into Kindergarten. She has her orientation coming up and I want to be prepared. What about a 504? How do I go about doing one? Who do I need to contact in the school system?
Any tips are very much appreciated! Thank you so much!
