Integration of low literacy diabetes care support resources into Diabetes Management Plans – they work well for individuals with an intellectual disability and busy support workers!

Topics covered include when to see the doctor, what to do when levels are high or low, treatment of hypoglycaemia, how to check a blood glucose level, how to give insulin, lifestyle management of diabetes and more. These are useful for disability support organisations and health professionals wanting low literacy resources for their service.
