Everyday Wisdom Kit
New to Type 1 Diabetes? Order your Everyday Wisdom ™ Kit today!
The Everyday Wisdom Kit is a free tool to help children and families of children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes live with diabetes every day.
We know a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes can be tough for any family. Everyday moments can become more of a challenge. The Everyday Wisdom Kit helps families plan for those everyday moments and events such as birthday parties, playing sports, and driving.
The Kit comes in a reusable lunch bag and includes:
- A guide for parents
- A guide for the child with diabetes
- A guide for the teen with diabetes
- A guide for the sibling
- An interactive card game for the whole family
- A Safe Diabetes Sitter Guide
- A dog tag to personalize as a medical ID necklace
- Emergency Contact Information refrigerator magnet
- Diabetes Dictionary
- Information about the American Diabetes Association’s Diabetes Camp and Safe at School® programs.
While this kit cannot replace the need to see a health care professional, we hope it will help you better understand what to expect with type 1 diabetes.
The Everyday Wisdom Kit is available to families for free thanks to an educational grant from Lilly.
