Children with diabetes need support from parents or carers, doctors, schools and communities.
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has information about supports for children with diabetes.
This includes supports such as dietary management, support for families, education and schooling.
We expect parents or carers to look after their child’s daily support needs, including management of health.
If your child’s diabetes support needs are more than what you can provide as a parent or carer, we may fund them. The support needs must relate specifically to your child’s disability. As with adults, all supports for children must meet the NDIS funding criteria.
Learn more about supports you can get through the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
