Part II: Parent's Guide of how a child becomes eligible for special education and related services
Syrup of Ipecac No Longer Recommended
50 Years of Work in Women's Reproductive Health Recognized
Tis' Strep Season!

Your Responsibilities as a Parent (Part II) - 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 - 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.

50 Years of Work in Women's Reproductive Health Recognized - A Conference to be held at the University of Melbourne over this coming weekend will celebrate half a century of work by Melbourne doctors, John and Evelyn Billings. In 1953 work was commenced on finding a method of natural family planning which would be applicable at all stages of a woman's reproductive life. Now, 50 years later, the Billings Method of natural fertility regulation is recognized around the world as the most effective means of avoiding pregnancy without drugs or devices. Learn about the Billings Method
