Child and Teen Diabetes Education Program

Child and Teen Program

Our Child and Teen Diabetes Education Program specializes in infants, children and teens with Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes and those who are at risk of developing diabetes. Our team consists of clerical staff and volunteers, physicians specializing in diabetes and adolescent mental health, diabetes educators including nurses and dietitians and a social worker. Your child and family are the most important part of the diabetes team. The team will work together to provide care with respect, integrity, excellence and compassion. Our patients come first in everything we do.


Participation in our program is by physician referral.  

The Paediatric Diabetes Education Centre (DEC) at NYGH is now using Ocean eReferral to accept referrals. Using eReferral will allow us to efficiently communicate directly with you about the status of your referral. 

Faxed referrals are still accepted, however do have a longer processing time compared to Ocean eReferral. If you would like to instead fax your referral, please fax it to 416-756-6329.
