Hi, my name is Dania and I am a student and a type 1 diabetic of six years. I am currently conducting research on the effects of type 1 diabetes on a child’s self-confidence at school. I believe that we sometimes forget that the complications of type 1 diabetes can transcend physical effects, and I think it is important to analyze how type 1 diabetes can effect a child’s mindset and behavior at school.
Given that your child does not know any other diabetic children, I would really appreciate it if you and your child could take my survey linked below to help my research, as I would like to see how this issue effects him socially at school. If you have diabetic and non-diabetic children, please have each of them do the survey. I hope that this research can either help diabetic children better understand themselves or help parents better understand what their children may be facing.
If you would like to have a copy of the research results, please provide your email address at the end of the survey, as I would LOVE to share the findings of my research with you! My ultimate goal is to help diabetic children get the help that they may need. The safety of my participants is of utmost importance to me, and no information that could possibly reveal the identity of anyone will be disclosed in my research, which may ultimately be published in a student journal.
More information and the survey can be accessed by this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Z6T8MC7
I am depending on your support. Thank you!!
