Parent Perspectives Forum Policies
Parent Perspectives is a forum where parents and other family members of children with disabilities can share experiences and ideas, pose questions for discussion and gain support from other parents.
Who Can Post in the Forum?
Any registered user of the Starting POINTS website may post to the Parent Perspectives Forum.
By posting on the Parent Perspectives Forum you agree to abide by the following policies:
We reserve the right to remove posts or threads if they are deemed to breach any forum rules as outlined here.
We recommend that you not post any personal information such as your address, email, or phone number in the forum. If a community member chooses to post his or her personal e-mail address, he or she understands that information has been posted on a public website, and that the Parent Information Center is not responsible for any unwanted contacts generated by the community member’s voluntary sharing of his or her personal e-mail address. Posting of any personal information beyond the user’s e-mail address will be removed.
While we encourage parents to share information about products, programs or services from which you or your child may have benefited, this does not infer a product endorsement or recommendation by the Parent Information Center. Further, Starting POINTS for Parents does not accept direct advertising for products and services or any commercial related endeavors. Postings of this nature will be removed.
While we appreciate that users may feel strongly about some of the subject matter or comments included on the Starting POINTS for Parents site, in order to ensure that the site is one on which all users feel safe, we have established the following limitations on content that may be posted. The Parent Information Center maintains the right to review content, and remove, without notice or explanation, any content that it deems to:
- be offensive or inappropriate, including postings using profanity, as well as pornographic images, and links to sites involving illegal activity or discussion or pornography
- be inaccurate (i.e. a website that is spelled wrong)
- include spamming
- include personal attacks (i.e., flaming) against any person, school or school district, or that involve attacks or discrimination based on race, national origin, religion, gender or gender orientation, or disability
- divulge another individual’s personal information
- be, in the case of older posts, no longer relevant
Also, please note that the Parent Information Center cannot be responsible for the content of other sites, such as those we include as resources, and requests that community members notify us if a link has changed or has been discontinued.
