With the rights afforded people with disabilities through the Americans with Disabilities Act, more and more children are able to take their service dogs to school. Read the story of two kids and their service dogs on NPR's website. Even though these are not Diabetic Alert Dogs, the same rights - because of the Americans with Disabilities Act - apply to DADs and a multitude of other kinds of service dogs.

Kids with Diabetes. The Classroom.

Managing diabetes is a 24-hour-a-day job ... including when your child is in school. The American Diabetes Association created the Safe at School program to ensure that:

  • All children with diabetes are medically safe at school and
  • All children with diabetes have the same educational opportunities as their classmates.
Take advantage of this program that helps families overcome barriers at school by providing solutions to challenges their child may encounter.
