Part II: Parent's Guide of how a child becomes eligible for special education and related services
Syrup of Ipecac no longer recommended

How a child becomes eligible for special education and related services - Over the next few months, we will be bringing you a special series: A Parent's Guide of how a child becomes eligible for special education and related services, parents' rights and responsibilities, and a school's rights and responsibilities.

Last month: Letter Writing and Your Rights as a Parent

This month: Your Responsibilities as a Parent - The special education team includes education specialists, therapists, medical personnel, the parent(s) or person(s) who have custody of the child, and the child when appropriate. As a full member of this team, the parent has responsibilities. These may not be as clearly defined as your rights, but they are just as important. Your most basic responsibility is to be an active team member, to establish effective communication between home and school, and to share information about your child's education and development with other members of the team.

Syrup of Ipecac no longer recommended - November 3, 2003--In a new policy statement, "Poison Treatment in the Home," the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that syrup of ipecac no longer be used routinely as a home treatment strategy. Until now, the AAP advised that parents keep a 1-ounce bottle of syrup of ipecac in the home to induce vomiting if it was feared a child had swallowed a poisonous substance. Ipecac was recommended for use only on the advice of a doctor or poison control center.
