Social Issues: School and Daycare

Question from Orchard Park, New York, USA:

My 10 year old son was diagnosed 2 years ago and I am still trying to get the 504 disability act in place at his school. Can you give me any guidelines to follow when I do finally meet with them? Also is there any guidelines to give to his gym teacher or coaches for sport activities?

Answer:

Look at Diabetes Management at School. There is a sample letter for the physical education teacher.
