For parents of school age children.
A group at the University of Michigan is doing a research project focusing on parents' perceptions of their child's independence caring
for their type 1 diabetes, the amount of support (alliance) that parents
perceive they receive from the school, community, etc., parental perceptions of
stress related to caring for their child's diabetes, parental well-being and
some questions regarding the children, i.e., age, sex, HgbA1c
This research study, designed to look at parental perceptions of their child’s school's ability to assist children with type 1 diabetes management while they are in school (parent/school alliance) and the influence of their
perceptions on their health, is greatly appreciated.
You will not be asked to give your name or other identifying information in this survey.
