Question:

From Upper Darby, PA, USA:

My 18 year old son will be entering college next autumn. Is he eligible for any financial aid from Vocational Training or the American Disabilities Act?

Answer:

There is some regional variation, but in general young people with uncomplicated diabetes are not considered to be disabled.

Two excellent places to find an answer to your question are:

  • The National Parent Network on Disabilities, at 1727 King Street, Suite 305, Alexandria, VA 22314, telephone 703-684-6763, and
  • The National Information Center for Children and Youth with Disabilities, at P.O. Box 1492, Washington, DC 20013, telephone 1-800-695-0285.
