Class Experience

After this course, students will be able to:
- speak about their lives, their interests, and their hobbies confidently. 
- be unashamed to speak about their illness. 
- make friends with others who share a similar experience
- understand that everyone has a unique identity that is valuable and worth sharing about.
I have had type 1 diabetes since 2001. I have years of experience working with children and teens who have diabetes and similar medical disabilities. I am a volunteer mentor for newly diagnosed patients. I also offer support to parents of newly diagnosed children with diabetes.  I have created, hosted and monitored several support groups for both teens and young adults who have diabetes. 
I am the lead director of a local youth group, and have been involved with the organization for 4 years. I meet weekly with my youth group to discuss, connect, and support them. This class is not a therapy session or to receive medical advice. Although the students have a medical diagnosis, we will not be discussing personal management of the disease itself. There will be no medical advice given whatsoever. The teacher is a 21 year type 1 diabetic and T1D advocate, not a therapist or medical doctor.
Bring anything you'd like to share with the class! This could be anything diabetes related like a teddy bear, insulin pump, backpack, stickers, pens, cool devices-- anything. You may also bring another item you'd like to share. Bring something new each week! Students who do not want to share items can prepare a story or joke to share with the class.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be using the word "diabetes" and related words when sharing our experiences, playing games, and asking and answering questions. Your child should have a basic knowledge of what "diabetes" means. We will not be giving or asking advice about managing the disease, however.
