It's been 96 years since insulin was used to treat diabetes, now parents will receive more support from schools for their diabetic children.
Parents of diabetic children will have their needs protected by law later this month.
The Additional Learning Needs (ALN) bill ensures children living with type 1 diabetes and other medical conditions will have guaranteed care plans drawn up between parents and schools.
People with Type 1 diabetes cannot produce the hormone insulin, meaning they must receive regular doses via injections or a pump.
Some parents say they have had to call into schools to administer insulin jabs themselves.
The Bill will extend to children and young people aged 0-25 and will apply to nurseries, colleges and universities for the first time.
The new system is expected to be fully in place by September 2020, although some areas are piloting it already.
