How do you explain type 1 diabetes to students? I asked a preschool teacher whose daughter has t1d to talk about how to get the message through without scaring anyone.

Laura Self also has a great book our for kids called Sweetie. Her daughter, Hannah, was diagnosed at age 8 and is now 20. She spent the spring semester in Europe this year. Laura and I talk about how we tried to help our children find independence, confidence, and responsibility with diabetes.
