I am not a regular poster to this board, but my 15 year old daughter was just diagnosed with Type I. Obviously this has been a shocking and worrisome time for our family, but she is now home from the hospital and seems to be adjusting well to the carb-counting and self-injection.My question concerns the school. She attends a public high school and has been out for the last few days. I will probably keep her at home the rest of the week until we are very comfortable with the routine. In the preliminary conversations with the school nurse, they got all excited about 504 Accomodation paperwork and want me to fill out a bunch of forms.I am extremely reluctant to give the bureaucrats anymore than is legally required, but since she will have to carry insulin and needles with her I guess I need to work with them. One of the papers they wanted me to sign was grant access to her medical records, which I definately do not want to sign. Any advice about how to deal with the school would be much appreciated.ThanksIC
