Getting on with Type 1 Diabetes

If you know a child or young person with an intellectual disability who has type 1 diabetes, you can use the pictures in this book to help them understand what diabetes is and how, with support, this illness can fit into their everyday life. Florence is always thirsty and lacks energy. She is referred to hospital and has lots of tests. She is told she has diabetes and learns how to inject insulin and eat a healthy diet. At the end of the story, we see Florence enjoying time with her school friends again.
