    I am from the UK and I work in the Early years sector but there's this friend of mine who lives in the US.

    This friend of mine has a little brother aged 2 who has type 1 diabetes and no day care are accepting the little brother to attend their day care .

    I wanted to ask your opinion on what I can do to help/ what advice I can give to my friend and their family.

  2. Day care facilities are not equipped with a nurse or a trained professional that will give insulin shots. That is probably the issue. Besides, I'm sure your friend wants someone who is professionally trained to care for a diabetic child. I know how difficult it can be with a diabetic child. My daughter was diagnosed at age 7 and she is now 22.

    Where in the US? I would suggest visiting a special ed elementary school or a regular elementary that takes Sped kids and just ask the people there for advice.

    First of all, you have to visit doctor, who can only get the right care rules. Than you should do all that your doctor will say
