Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Case Decisions: Health-Related Service Considerations for School Psychologists
Schmitt, Ara J.; Wodrich, David L.; Lazar, Susan
Psychology in the Schools, v47 n8 p803-816 Sep 2010
Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a chronic illness that can impact learning and often requires medical management in the school setting. School psychologists must therefore be knowledgeable of special service eligibility criteria associated with T1DM, the health-related services often required of such students, and what health-related services schools are obliged to provide. Although federal regulations speak to special service eligibility criteria to consider for children with T1DM, such codes do not outline what health services schools are expected to provide. One way to glean this information is by examining published case decisions involving diabetes health-related services in the schools. Themes and examples in five decision categories provide vital information for school psychologists regarding school service planning for T1DM. (Contains 1 table.)
